Ambassador Pasquale Terracciano attended several events at the University of Cambridge during a two-day visit aiming to highlight Italian studies at the prestigious university. The Ambassador was also given a tour of the Fitzwilliam Museum, where two loaned bronzes, on show at the museum, were recently attributed to Michelangelo.
The Ambassador met with Italian academics and academics studying Italian subjects at the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, who presented short overviews of their research in their respective areas of study. He also took the opportunity to meet and hold a discussion with a class of undergraduates who are studying Italian.
The visit to Cambridge University, as in the case of a recent previous meeting with representatives of its scientific centres of excellence, is part of a series of initiatives by this Embassy in support of the significant Italian presence at universities and research centres in the United Kingdom.
