Cooperazione culturale

Italian Institute of Culture - Nairobi

Italy and Kenya signed, in October 2006, a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation in the cultural sector.

Cultural cooperation between Italy and Kenya occurs mainly through the Italian Institute of Culture in Nairobi, whose website includes numerous links with the main Italian cultural institutions. Very active on the capital’s cultural scene, this Institute has in the course of the last four years set in motion numerous cooperation projects that have involved artists from the two countries, markedly in the fields of performing arts, music and visual arts. In its function as a “window” to Italian culture abroad, it hosts exhibitions, shows, concerts and conferences within the framework of an intense annual programme of cultural activities. It also carries out an important function of promotion of the Italian language through the courses that are conducted at its premises in Nairobi. As the Embassy’s cultural office, the Institute also handles procedures regarding the Declaration of Academic Eligibility and Suitability and equivalence of academic certificates issued by Kenyan educational authorities and universities. Equipped with a rich library, a newspaper library, a multi-media library, apart from being connected by satellite with Rai International, the Italian Institute of Culture is currently the most important resource centre on Italy in Kenya.
