Along with more “traditional” educational activities (contributions to schools for teacher salaries, purchase of books, financial support for libraries, acquisition of didactic materials and teachers professional development) other activities are essential to “bringing Italy inside the schools” and ultimately conveying directly to the students the passion, taste, style and innovation which characterize our wonderful Italian language and culture! The “Patrons of the Italian Language” represent a concrete manifestation of the passion and strong desire of the Italian and Italian American Community to sustain the necessary actions required to offer and deliver those cultural and linguistic activities which will help our language to be ever more vibrant and strong in the American school system.
To be a Patron means to contribute effectively to the realizations of specific projects such as the “Italian Day” in schools which will be held in March and October every year, professional development for teachers, awards and recognitions for students (in particular AP level), visit to some Italian companies here in the US (such as the Ferrari and Lamborghini dealers or the new Eataly Boston Store) and any other activity able to promote and invigorate the teaching of our wonderful language in the schools and universities in the United States.
We hope that you too will consider becoming a Patron of the Italian language!
