British Council Italy
The British Council is the UK’s official organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. They have been creating international opportunities and building trust between the people of the UK and other countries since 1934.
The British Council in Italy has been working in cultural relations since 1945. Their operations in Italy are governed by a UK/Italy bilateral cultural convention signed by both governments in November 1951 and ratified in February 1953 under Italian Law 124 which also covers the activity of the Italian Cultural Institutes in the UK. They have offices in Rome, Milan and Naples with a combined staff of over 100 who every year work with many thousands of Italians directly plus millions more online through our activities in English, Arts and Education and Society.
Their educational and cultural programmes and services are in line with the British Council's charitable objectives to create opportunity for people. Young people in particular benefit from high quality language training and gain an international perspective plus useful skills that can help them develop their careers.
