L’importanza del programma Fulbright per Ca’ Foscari
This paper deals with the Fulbright exchange programme, started by Senator James W. Fulbright in 1946, and active in Italy from 1948, when the Italian government signed the agreement. The Fulbright programme was essential in the life and career of many Italian scientists, artists, musicians, etc. and it was very important in opening up American Studies at Ca’ Foscari, one of the very first universities, with Roma La Sapienza, to start a separate course of American Studies in Europe.
