ITALIAN CULTURAL CENTRE WALES LAUNCHES IN CARDIFF

Press Release

ITALIAN CULTURAL CENTRE WALES LAUNCHES IN CARDIFF

The Italian Cultural Centre Wales was launched on Friday 22 May 2015 at an event held at Butetown Arts & History Centre in Cardiff.

At the event attended by representatives from a number of arts organisations in Wales, Directors Dr Luisa Pèrcopo and Dr Luca Paci outlined their vision for the Centre as a lively connecting hub and resource centre for Italians in Wales and everyone interested in Italian culture.

The evening included performances by the Italian poet and translator Cristina Viti and by Baritone Richard Parry, who sang Italian and Welsh arias accompanied by pianist Chris Glynn. A documentary on Italians living in Wales directed by Paolo Viel was also shown. Refreshments were provided by Calabrisella, and sponsored by Orangebox and Vinitalia.

The Centre is run by a team of enthusiastic Italians based in Wales from a variety of different backgrounds and regions in Italy including video editor/VFX generalist Paolo Viel, and Italian tutor Caterina Bertelli.

Luisa Pèrcopo and Luca Paci said: “Our purpose is to discover and create new connections between Italy, Wales and the rest of Europe and to reinforce existing ones, particularly those born from the well-established Italian-Welsh communities who have played an important role in contributing to and shaping present day Wales.”

The centre will host regular cultural events such as book launches, poetry reading, a film and a book club, food tastings and concerts. The next event will be held at Butetown History and Arts Centre on 2nd June (Republic Day in Italy). The event called #GranaJazz will feature a live performance by Gyazzoband (an Italian Jazz band based in Caerphilly) and wine and Grana cheese will be available for tasting.

The event also officially launched the first Italian Film Festival in Cardiff, which will take place in October 2015.

There are also plans to run an educational programme for children and adults learning and maintaining Italian as a second or first language in partnership with The Italian Job.
