Director of the Italian Institute of Culture visits MSLU

On September 8, Daniela Rizzi, newly appointed director of the Italian Institute of Culture of the Italian Embassy in the RF, a renowned slavist, professor at Ca’Foscari, Venice, came to visit MSLU. We have long and close friendships with the IIK, and today our rector Ms Kraeva and Ms Rizzi discussed the expansion of cooperation, which will result in a new agreement. Currently, about 200 students study Italian at MSLU. We host the Italian language Olympiads for schoolchildren, organized jointly with the Italian Embassy and Consulate, as well as the Institute of Italian Culture. MSLU cooperates with 14 Italian universities. Over the past 2 years, the number of exchange quotas has tripled. In 2019/2020, 45 students of our university went on internships to Italy. MSLU received 34 Italian students, 11 failed to come for COVID. Since 2020, MSLU and the University of Pisa are implementing a double degree program on Linguistics for up to 6 graduate students from each party.
The Italian Cultural Institute in Moscow strives to promote the Italian language and culture in Russia by organizing cultural events to spread ideas, art and science. Mutually beneficial cooperation between MSLU and the Institute of Culture will expand educational opportunities for university students.
