Kuwait to host first ‘Ital­ian Week’

From Novem­ber 27th to De­cem­ber 4th

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The Em­bassy of Italy in Kuwait is glad to an­nounce that the first ‘Ital­ian Week’ in Kuwait will take place from Novem­ber 27th un­til De­cem­ber 4th.

It is with great sat­is­fac­tion that we launch this ini­tia­tive this year when Kuwait is the cap­i­tal of the Is­lamic cul­ture and, thanks to the vi­sion of His High­ness the Amir, great im­por­tance is be­ing given to the devel­op­ment of cul­tural re­la­tions.

The ‘Ital­ian Week’ is a mul­ti­fac­eted event that aims to bring ‘more Italy in Kuwait’, con­cen­trat­ing in the space of a week an ar­tic­u­lated range of art ex­hi­bi­tions, con­certs, lec­tures, a photo con­test, a soc­cer tour­na­ment and var­i­ous pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­i­ties of the ‘made in Italy’ de­signed to fur­ther in­crease the ex­cel­lent re­la­tions be­tween Italy and Kuwait and to broaden the knowl­edge of ar­eas of ex­cel­lence, as well as of less known facts about our ‘Bel Paese’ (Beau­ti­ful Coun­try). The full pro­gram of the event is avail­able on the web­site of this Em­bassy: www.am­balkuwait.es­teri.it as well as on In­stra­gram: @italyinkwt.

Italy is the third largest euro­zone econ­omy and the eighth in the world, a do­mes­tic mar­ket of 60 mil­lion peo­ple, a gate­way to 500 mil­lion con­sumers from EU and 270 mil­lion from North Africa and the Mid­dle East. It is also the se­cond man­u­fac­tur­ing coun­try in Europe, with a unique know-how in strate­gic in­dus­tries, from ma­chiner­ies to au­to­ma­tion, from aero­space in­dus­try to ship­build­ing, from health to bio-medicine, in ad­di­tion to the sec­tors for which Italy is fa­mous in the world, like fash­ion, de­sign, cars, cui­sine, agri­cul­tural and food in­dus­try.

In Italy, there are re­search and devel­op­ment cen­ters of ex­cel­lence and more than 20 Ital­ian univer­si­ties that are ranked among the best 500 in the world. The qual­ity of life that Italy can of­fer, with its land­scapes, arts, his­tory, cul­ture and cui­sine is unique and un­ri­valed. There­fore, we wish that this ini­tia­tive will at­tract the en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pa­tion of our Kuwaiti friends, and in par­tic­u­lar of young peo­ple.

A spe­cial thanks goes, first of all, to the Na­tional Coun­cil for Cul­ture, Arts and Let­ters, for the im­por­tant sup­port in the or­ga­ni­za­tion of three beau­ti­ful con­certs. Then, to our gen­er­ous spon­sors, who helped us to make this Ital­ian Week come true.
