  • Le Strade della Mozzarella will be hosting events in New York City Kestè Pizzeria on Wall Street, filled with rich culture, Neapolitan food and a community like no other. Come join June 27 and June 29 for a time that will leave you loving Italian food and wanting more!
  • Rivers, mountains, beaches and a sea teeming with fish. This UNESCO World Heritage Site starts at the temples and ancient Greek ruins of Paestum and comprises eighty towns and villages, sixty miles of coast, the tallest mountains and densest forests in the region, as well as dozens of vineyards, wine cellars and farming businesses that produce exquisite food.
  • Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Paolo Gentiloni, has just appointed the new directors of three major Italian Cultural Institutes: in London, Moscow, and New York. The director’s office at 686 Park Avenue will now be occupied by Giorgio Van Straten, award-winning author and manager of arts associations of the caliber of the Venice Biennale and of Agis (the Italian association for the performing arts), among others.

  • IACE annual assembly and award ceremony for the teachers who have brought the largest number of students to sustain the Italian AP exam. The goal was reached one year ahead of schedule: the number of American high school students enrolled in the Italian AP (Advanced Placement) exam this coming Spring has already surpassed 2,500, the minimum that had to be reached by 2016 to keep the test alive. And 60% out of the 2.993 students who signed up to take the exam come from the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, where IACE operates.
  • Italian language and Italian culture make an inseparable pair. Ilaria Costa, executive director of the Italian American Committee on Education (IACE), speaks about this and recounts how difficult it is, in the Tristate area, to promote everything Italian through the language. It’s surprising – but not surprising to us at i-Italy – that many Americans, who do not have a familial relationship with our country, are interested in studying our language. The charm of our culture penetrates America, regardless of the blood ties of its inhabitants.
