Virtual Event

Italian Between Word and Image: Graffiti, Illustrations, Comic Books is the theme for the XX Week of the Italian Language in the World (October 19-25, 2020), a theme that can be developed both in a socio-linguistic key and by emphasizing expressive forms such as comics books, graphic novels and children’s books.

Join us on Zoom: Sunday, October 25, 2020 @4:00pm EST (Check in 3:45pm)
Guest Speaker: Paolo Pagliacci from Perugia, Italy.

Learn how a unique inspiration and experience guides Paolo and how art can affect, contribute, and influence people.
Art allows people from different cultures and different times to communicate with each other via images, sounds and stories.

Paolo Pagliacci is an illustrator and graphic designer. He creates animations for cinema, collaborates with graphic design studios to develop advertising illustrations, and has worked with publishing houses to make book illustrations for fables, didactic volumes, and more. He has also made several animated short films, including two about Dante’s Divine Comedy (one of which is in the process of being redesigned). He is a lecturer of advertisement graphics at ITTS A. Volta Perugia.

“L’italiano tra parola e immagine: graffiti, illustrazioni, fumetti”, una tematica che potrà essere declinata sia in chiave storico-linguistica, sia ponendo l’accento su forme espressive come il fumetto, la novella grafica e l’editoria per ragazzi.

Cos’è la Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo?
La Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo è una manifestazione promossa dalla rete culturale e diplomatica ogni anno nella terza settimana di ottobre intorno ad un tema che funge da filo conduttore per l’organizzazione di un vasto programma culturale focalizzato intorno alla diffusione della lingua italiana. L’iniziativa nasce nel 2001 da un’intesa tra il Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale e l’Accademia della Crusca cui si affiancò in seguito la Confederazione Svizzera, Paese in cui l’italiano è una delle lingue ufficiali.

This Virtual Event is FREE to the Public.
Organized by the Dante Alighieri Society of Michigan in collaboration with the Dante Alighieri Society of Massachusetts. With the support of the Italian Italian American Club of Livonia Charitable Foundation.

Under the auspices of the Consulate of Italy in Detroit and Consulate of Italy in Boston.

Reservation is required by October 23, 2020.
