The Italian Institute of Culture in Sofia is the cultural official body of the Italian State which aims to promote and diffuse Italian language and culture in Bulgaria. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the reciprocal knowledge the two People and to enhance the cultural collaboration between them, within the context of the relations which they have already established. It operates in synergy with all the other Italian institutions present in Bulgaria and the major Bulgarian institutions. As regards the language promotion, this is carried out by organizing a variety of language courses which are structured according to the six levels, from beginner to advanced, as described by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). As regards the culture promotion, this is carried out by organizing a variety of events, not only in Sofia but also in other towns, in order to present some of the most recent and meaningful cultural experiences produced in Italy to Bulgarian audiences. As evidence of that, the photograph exhibition entitled TRIVIGNANO DREAMS by the artists Persisters, included in the Month of Photography 2013, is an excellent example.
