The Week of the Italian Language in the World is an event promoted by the Italian cultural and diplomatic network every year in the third week of October around a theme that acts as a leitmotif for the organization of a vast cultural program focused on the dissemination of the Italian language.
The XXI edition is honouring Dante Alighieri – who died in exile from Florence on September 13, 1321 – in myriad ways including exhibits, dramatic readings, seminars and concerts all over the world.
“Dante plus 700” is a collective exhibition of a group of artists trying to give a new identity to the Poet Dante Alighieri through illustrations, comics and street art.
All information on this event will be available on the web site of the Embassy of Italy in Dhaka www.ambdhaka.esteri.it and its social networks. On portal www.italiana.esteri.it will be possible to follow all other events organized within the program “Dante 700 nel mondo”.
