Atlanta Art institutions Hosts Year of Italian Culture 2013
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced 2013 as the "Year of Italian Culture" in the United States. Atlanta arts institutions have joined in the celebration and will host events throughout the Fall that highlight everything from Italian music to Renaissance and Baroque images of Rome to Italy's best exports, wine and design. Harmonie Universelle, The Atlanta Opera, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Michael C. Carlos Museum, and Museum of Design Atlanta offer visitors a chance to experience Italy's rich culture and history.
"The 2013 Year of Italian Culture is an important opportunity for Italy to continue to build a stronger cultural relationship with the United States on which we can expand for years to come," says Angela Della Costanza Turner, Honorary Consul General of Italy. "Italy has a wealth of cultural resources to offer and seeks to become a primary cultural ally with the United States and to maintain ongoing cultural exchange."
