Analyzing the Network of the Italian Cultural Institute of Copenhagen. Reactions to the Farnesina Reform and Promotion of the Sistema Italia

di Giulia Gulotta

The Italian Cultural Institutes are not just pivotal elements of the Italian cultural diplomacy but also crucial tools to promote Italian culture and language. The Reform of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2010) determined a reorganization of both the internal structure of the Ministry and the international network of offices.
