 ICWRF NEW MAGAZINE


At the end of November 2010 Rotary International recognized a new Fellowship, the “ICWRF - Italian Culture Worldwide Rotarian Fellowship”. The ICWRF originated from the common actions of a small group of Rotarians from different continents, who met through Rotary exchanges and international projects, and for almost ten years have been using their friendship and their contacts for supporting their own districts Rotarian international
projects. The Fellowship is meant to be used as an international service network between all Rotarians interested in Italian culture and living abroad, and Italian Rotarian and Italian cultural and social association in Italy and abroad. The ICWRF aims to offer individuals and institutions pre-organized channels for contacts, research, scholarships, public meetings, exchanges and field trips to investigate all aspects of the dissemination of Italian culture. Based on a common interest for Italian culture and on the example of Italian immigrants, the purpose of the ICWRF is to promote cooperation and collaboration among various cultures, peoples and countries, using the Rotary network both for studying and analysing the common and sharable roots, and for better understanding how different
cultures adapt and integrate with other cultures, paying particular attention to immigration problems and fostering thereby international understanding and consensus.

Why Italian culture is so important


ICWRF

Italian culture has always belonged to the whole of mankind, dating from the Roman times to the present day, and is one of the foundation stones of modern world culture: during several periods of western history – the Roman empire, the Renaissance, Neoclassicism, the Romantic musical movement – it has been a kind of common denominator for people’s cultural exchanges and understanding, through architecture and picture, music and poetry, and recently, even through modern applied arts such as design, fashion and cinematography. In this way the Italian culture has been disseminated throughout the world by thousands of Italian artists, researchers, painters, musicians and composers, travellers, architects, engineers, explorers, actors, sculptors, writers, who over the centuries have moved abroad to work, carrying with them their own vision, and integrating it into the culture of the foreign country. In a similar way, Italian culture has been spread worldwide by thousands of foreigners who went to live in Italy for short or long periods, adsorbed the culture, carried it back to their home country, and adapted it to the local situation. In the last two centuries, a new factor has then added to this two-way cultural flow, enhancing it: Italian immigration. As a result, Italian culture has been disseminated at a different, wider level by millions of immigrants: indeed Italian immigration has been quite unique in this respect, since it spread massively worldwide reaching at least four of the five continents. Nowadays the descendants of the first immigrants are loyal citizens of their countries and respectable members of their communities, although they quite frequently preserved the habits and interests of their parents’ original country.

Pleas to meet you, we are the ICWRF

A message from the outgoing International President
Despite being barely spoken outside Italy, Italian is among the most studied foreign languages. This does not come as a surprise considering that la bella lingua (the beautiful language) manages to enchant everyone because of its melodic sounds and the cultural heritage attached to it (not to mention its cuisine!). They say that when Italian people are abroad, they don’t learn the local language but they teach Italian to the locals. Well, having lived abroad for quite some time, I can’t say that this is entirely accurate but there is a little hint of truth in this saying: we love our language so much that we want as many people as possible to get to know it. This is one of the reasons why, as an Italian and as a member of the Italian Culture Worldwide Rotarian Fellowship, I decided to close my five-year long service in the position of international president with a special number devoted to the second language of our Fellowship, using in the articles un pò di italiano (some Italian).
Thanks to all the friends who shared and are sharing with me our wonderful, exiting adventure, un grande abbraccio a tutti (a big hug to you all), and best wishes to Corrado Perrone, un grande amico ed un futuro grande presidente internazionale (a great friend and a future great international president).

Francesco Clemente, ICWRF International President

Lookings for Argentinian friends!


ICWRF

Our International Treasurer Corrado Perrone is flying to Argentina, where he’s going to attend meetings of a number of Italian Argentine associations, i.e. associations of persons born in Argentina of Italian descent or Italy-born persons who reside in Argentina.
It is estimated that up to 24 million Argentines have some degree of Italian descent (up to 60% of the total population), making it the largest ethnic group in the country. Italians began arriving in Argentina in great numbers from 1857 to 1940, totaling 44.9% of the entire immigrant population; more than from any other country (including Spain at 31.5%), and this migratory flow continued to the early 1950s, with Italy also having the most emigrants to Argentina for the decades 1980–2000. Because of this, Italian descent is at least 60% of the population, almost 25 million.
