|Taking the pulse of Italy today: a creative presence in Europe and in Australia
A public lecture by H.E. Francesca Tardioli, Ambassador of Italy in Australia
This lecture is part of a year-long series that celebrates the 90th Anniversary of Italian Studies at UWA
2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the teaching of Italian language and culture at The University of Western Australia.
In 1929, Francesco Vanzetti, an idiosyncratic and popular Venetian, offered the first courses in Italian. This was the first appointment of a lecturer in Italian in any Australian university.
This lecture series, supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies and by Italian Studies in the UWA School of Humanities, celebrates aspects of Italian language and culture, past and present.
