The New York launch of La Rivoluzione Bilingue was a success. It was hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute in their beautiful mansion on Park Avenue. The event was organized by InItaliano and the Consulate of Italy in New York.
|InItaliano strives to keep parents informed about their options in their children’s education. Founded by Stefania Puxeddu, Benedetta Scardovi, and Francesco Fadda here is how InItaliano presented this event: “As we all know, in this country, parental involvement, along with the support of the DOE key players, is what makes the difference in this Bilingual Revolution. Together we can make informed decisions and make a change!” All net proceeds for “La Rivoluzione bilingue” were donated to InItaliano in support of Italian dual-language education in New York. |
The book talk was introduced by Paolo Barlera, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute, followed by Francesco Genuardi, Consul General of Italy who reminded us of his country’s engagement for multilingualism and for the advancement of the Italian language in the United States. Education Director Annavaleria Guazzieri interviewed author Fabrice Jaumont and moderated the discussion. It was great to launch the Italian translation in such grand style with the author, the book’s cover artist, Raymond Verdaguer, and the book’s Italian translator Stefania Puxeddu all reunited for this event.
