Promoting Italian

In the United States, the Italian language can count on a series of institutions and organizations that make its promotion and diffusion one of its main priorities.

The financial contributions allocated annually by the Italian government have played an essential role in the achievement of the programs of the Italian language in the United States scholastic system. Such funds are distributed across non-profit organizations, such as the Non-Profit Language Associations, that collaborate strictly with the Embassy, the Offices of the Italian Consular Network in the United States, and with the governing bodies of American schools at the county and district levels.

The promotion of the Italian language is primarily supported by the efforts of the numerous Italian-American organizations and the Italian teacher associations such as AATI and COPILAS.
