On September 26th 2021, the European Language Day will be celebrated throughout Europe, promoted by the Council of Europe in Strasbourg together with the European Commission which represents 47 member states.
This year also the Neapolitan language enters among the various initiatives that encourage cultural exchanges between the peoples of the world thanks to the I Lazzari Social Promotion Association which for years has promoted Neapolitan culture through the Neapolitan language, literature, theater and traditional and popular music; and which led to two very interesting events.
The first event will be held on September 21st, 2021, at 6.00 pm and it is entitled “’O Napulitano is in the world”. A conference held by Davide Brandi, president of I Lazzari Association, will include artistic interventions by actors, in declamations by Viviani, Eduardo, F. Russo, Di Giacomo, and other Neapolitan authors. It also will include musicians and singers interpretations of the traditional Neapolitan song.
The other event promoted by the Council of Europe is the Neapolitan Language Course, which I Lazzari have already held for years in various sites in Campania.
The Neapolitan Language Course will begin on Tuesday September 28th 2021 at 5.45 pm and will last until the end of January 2022. It is a course of 15 lessons and will as always be held by Davide Brandi.
Both events will be held in the historic Palazzo Venezia in Spaccanapoli,
at via Benedetto Croce n.19, Napoli.
Long live to the Neapolitan language … in the “rough” sea of English!
