“L’unione fa la forza!” Unity in numbers!

ISI Florence joins 19 other Italian language and culture institutions in forming the “Comitato di Volontariato” (Volunteer Committee) to safeguard Italian language schools and to promote quality sustainable tourism.

The Committee’s purpose is to promote Florence and Tuscany’s image abroad, concentrating on those institutions and activities that advocate the Italian language and Italian culture such as study abroad programs, restaurants, museums, artisans, and specialty shops – all fields that have been hit hard by the Covid crisis.

By bringing attention to this aspect of teaching and promoting Italian culture, the Committee hopes to attract the attention of government officials in order to direct funding towards protecting those who work in this field.
