A week dedicated to the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the high schools of Canton Bern
The sixth "+ identità: Settimana della Svizzera italiana", an USI initiative supported by the Federal Office of Culture, the Cantons of Bern, Ticino and Grisons and by the Oertli foundation, will be held from April 3rd to the 7th, 2017 in ten high schools of Canton Bern. The event will open on April 3rd and on April 6th a round table on multilinguism open to all students will be held.
A detailed programme in Italian is available at www.piuidentita.usi.ch
The event represents the culmination of a series of activities that began in August 2016 and involved the classes of Italian language of the ten schools.
The students, who can be considered as true ambassadors of the Italian language across the Alps, also created content for an app with 300 trivia on the Italian region of Switzerland.
