Napoli mille colori – A thousand colors of Naples
\”Giornata federiciana del dialogo interculturale\” (Frederician Day of Intercultural Dialogue) is the title of the event that on Thursday, October 6, 2022, will feature Erasmus Incoming students, currently involved in Italian L2 courses organized by the Centro Linguistico di Ateneo, and international students enrolled in undergraduate and doctoral programs at the University Federico II.
The meeting, which will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Church of Saints St. Marcellinus and Festus (Largo S. Marcellinus), will be opened by greetings from Matteo Lorito, Rector of the University of Naples Federico II, Valeria Costantino, Delegate for Federico II Erasmus Projects, and Pasquale Sabbatino, Director of the University Language Center.
Guided by the CLA language experts, the students will share with the audience passions and customs of their countries, from the places of the heart to popular traditions, from music to the gastronomy of individual peoples, from music to art, from cinema to theater, and then dwell on the theme of similarities and differences between Naples and the cities to which they belong.
To promote mutual discovery between different, seemingly distant worlds, students will take viewers on a journey through the streets of Naples and the world, illustrate digital works on Neapolitan and international culinary art, and compare famous people in Italy and around the world.
Naples, a stage for dialogue between the cultures and languages of Europe, will be the focus of a performance by students in the B2 level course entitled \”It\’s not true, but I believe it! Superstitions and popular beliefs in Naples and the world\”. A day, then, to get to know each other, recognize each other and learn about other stories through the common space of the Italian language.
To close the event, students will share a message of peace, reading in various languages the poem \”I painted peace\” by Talil Sorek, which will be illustrated by cartoonist Fabiana Fiengo.
