Italy Reads Program

With the patronage of the Embassy of the United States of America in Italy   

Italy Reads is a community-based English language reading and cultural exchange program that collaborates with 200 Italian high school teachers from over 60 high schools across Italy from Naples and Rome to Milan. Each year, one classic work of American literature is selected to read together.

Italy Reads began in 2009 as a National Endowment for the Arts "Big Read Rome" and the great success and demand for this program has now brought us to its 9th year as Italy Reads. The program benefits from the continued support from the United States Embassy to Italy, the English Theatre of Rome and John Cabot University.

In 2017, we welcome teachers from high schools in Italy, JCU student volunteers, and Italian high school students to join in our read of The Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson. The edition we are reading is the Modern Library, ISBN 978-0-679-78335-0 which includes an introduction by Billy Collins, United States Poet Laureate (2001–2003).

Mr. Collins was our Keynote Speaker this year!  He was joined, via video recording, at the Keynote Address on October 12th by a special guest. European Astronaut Paolo Nespoli engaged in Mission VITA on the International Space Station (ISS). Watch the video message  from the Cupola.
