16 Mar ItalyUntold signs two cooperation agreements with Itálicos do Brasil and Circolo italiano – São Paulo with the aim of spreading Italian culture abroad
Italy and Brazil have never been so close. ItalyUntold, the Brussels-based Think Tank, created to promote Italian excellences in the world, has signed two cooperation Protocols with the Associations Itálicos do Brasil and Circolo italiano-San Paolo, founded respectively in 2019 and 1911 by Italian emigrants in Brazil.
Thanks to these agreements, ItalyUntold and the Italian-Brazilian associations will share key data and information about Italian excellences in the two countries. They will cooperate to tell the stories of Italian professionals who, thanks to their hard work, contribute to conveying a positive image of Italy, though few people still know. In fact, more than 30 million Italians live in Brazil, a cohesive and perfectly integrated community that represents a great wealth for both countries.
This cooperation will generate promotion campaigns and opportunities for public debates and discussions, both in Italy and in Brazil, on multiple subjects, from economic and cultural issues, to science and technology, defense of human rights.
The presence of Italians in Brazil has deep roots. “The Italians have in fact made a strong contribution to the construction of São Paulo, the economic capital of the Carioca country and we are proud to promote all the value that our emigrants have brought to Brazil in terms of development”, says the President of ItalyUntold Francesco Briganti. “There will be many initiatives and contents that we will share so that the spotlight is turned on those excellences that are still little known”.
“This agreement represents a further tool to give voice and make known what Italians abroad and their descendants have achieved and continue to achieve, contributing to the spread of Italian culture”, says Giacomo Guarnera, president of the Itálicos do Brasil association. “This exchange will certainly strengthen the sense of belonging to a single culture among Italics in the world,” he concludes.
“We are very pleased to have signed this partnership – adds the president of the Circolo Italiano-San Paolo Giuseppe Bezzi – which will allow us to spread the reality of the Italian community of São Paulo and also to contribute to the dissemination of Italian culture”.
