Carlo Fierens opens the “Week of the Italian Language” in Armenia
On October 19th, 19:00, in Arno Babajanyan Concert Hall, Yerevan, a concert by Italian classical guitarist Carlo Fierens officially opened the 15th edition of The “Week of the Italian Language in the World”.
Carlo Fierens is an honorary member of the national academy of music in the USA. He has won more than 10 first prizes in national and international competitions. Several years ago he was awarded the national prize for the arts in Italy, held by the Italian Ministry of Education. This is Carlo’s first visit to Armenia; anyway, he has had many chances to hear about Armenia and Armenians. Carlo Fierens is glad to be in Armenia and give a concert for the Armenian audience.
The “Week of the Italian Language in the World”, now in its 15th edition, is running from 19 to 24 October 2015. This event, which takes place in the third week of October each year, is central to the promotion of the Italian language abroad.
This year’s theme linking the hundreds of events promoted and coordinated by the MFAIC in the five continents through its diplomatic, consular and cultural network, is “The Italian of Music, the Music of Italian”.
