abstract

Cultural notions are part and parcel of the process of Italian teaching and learning in Malta, a country with several historical, geographical and social contacts with the Belpaese. In fact, teachers of Italian in Malta are more familiar with Italy’s culture with respect to foreign counterparts, and they are generally highly interested in it. Nevertheless, a number of constraints lead to situations where the teaching of culture is heavily characterised by transmission and memorisation of information, rather than on learning intercultural competence as a lifelong skill. This study provides an investigation into these issues and formulates an outline of a didactic initiative designed purposely to promote intercultural education in the classroom of Italian in Malta.
