NDO – The Embassy of Italy to Vietnam has coordinated with Vietnam Television for the screening of a short series titled "Contemporary Italy", dedicated to the landmarks of contemporary art in Italy.

The event is being held on the occasion of the XVII Italian Contemporary Day.

The series was produced by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in collaboration with Sky Arte and TIWI as executive producers.

The four episodes ("Metropolis", "Open Air", "Old and new" and "Off road"), dubbed in Vietnamese, will be screened on channel VTV2 on Monday 6, Tuesday 7, Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 of December at 11am (Vietnam time) and will be accessible on smartphones and tablets via the VTV Go app.

Italy is home to many museums and exhibition spaces of great beauty and innovation, with a host of works by artists from all over the world.

Through this initiative with VTV, the Embassy of Italy aims at sharing with the Vietnamese public the Italian approach to contemporary art, seen as universal and open to exchanges with other cultures and creative visions.

Creativity is one of the values that express the image of Italy in the world and that are illustrated by “Italy is simply extraordinary: beIT”, the new Made in Italy communication campaign launched by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Trade Agency in 26 countries, including Vietnam.
