Italian Cultural Week 2014
workshop - musical performance - film screenings - exhibition
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Italian Cultural Week program, organized by the Italian Embassy in Accra with the generous support of our Italian sponsors. Italian Culture and Language are traditionally celebrated in the month of October worldwide: a vibrant Country like Ghana could not be an exception. Strong cultural ties between nations are the foundation for excellent bilateral and political relations, because they foster mutual knowledge and respect. In an increasingly interdependent and globalized world, it is necessary to widen our perspectives and I am sure that the Italian artists and academics that are coming to Ghana for this year's program will greatly benefit from interacting with their Ghanaian counterparts and audiences.
Italy boasts of one of the most ancient and richest cultures in the whole world and ranks first in the list of UNESCO world heritage with forty-seven registered sites. For centuries Italians have created masterpieces and reached top levels in every artistic, scientific, social and economic field. Although culture is much broader than art or entertainment, Italians have brought art, beauty and a unique concept of living and manufacturing in every aspect of their civilization, combining creativity and aesthetic sense with knowledge, science and, more recently, technology.
The program we are presenting to you will showcase examples of the above: this is our style, our business card in the world, what I am sure you appreciate when looking at our buildings, travelling through the country, listening to our music, buying an Italian product or savoring our cuisine.
I am sure that the Cultural Week will deepen the interest towards Italy in every aspect while providing an occasion for the numerous Italian citizens residing in Ghana to feel a taste of home.
Enjoy our program!

Musical performance “TWIN RHYTHMS” by Tarantula Rubra on Friday 17 October - 7 p.m at Alliance Francaise.
“Tarantism” is a very ancient musical and dancing tradition associated with the Southern region of Puglia. This music and its dance were used to treat those women and sometimes men who, while working in the fields, would be bitten by tarantulas and present convulsions and symptoms of madness. Local musicians would then be called in to play this very rhythmic and obsessive music. The workshop and concert offered in Accra will try to showcase common features between “tarantism” and traditional Ghanaian music.
All events are open to the public and free of charge.
