South Korea and Italy Celebrate Cultural Exchange
South Korea and Italy Celebrate Cultural Exchange0The 2024-2025 Year of Cultural Exchange between South Korea and Italy began on May 4. Italy will now host events promoting Korean culture, starting with a traditional Korean music and dance performance in Rome on the first day.

On May 4, the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced the commencement of the festivities to promote Korean culture across major Italian cities. The initiative, which includes concerts, exhibitions, film screenings, and tourism expos, is a collaborative effort involving multiple Korean cultural institutions.

The National Gugak Center launched the celebrations with a traditional Korean performance titled The Prince’s Dream (Il Sogno del Principe) at the Teatro Argentina in Rome. The show, which featured traditional Korean music and dances, such as taepyeongmu, sarangchum, sogochum, and pangut, received enthusiastic responses from the audience.

Yu In-chon, the Korean minister of culture, sports and tourism, attended the event alongside notable figures such as the director of the Colosseum Archaeological Park and officials from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

In the coming months, a range of events will unfold across Italy. June will see an exhibition showcasing works by veteran Korean writers in Rome and Milan, while a business-to-consumer event focused on Korean creative content will occur in July. October will feature a Korean tourism expo, while November will see modern Korean dance performances.

Additionally, in a significant cultural collaboration, Italy’s Experimental Center of Cinematography will partner with South Korea to screen short films introducing Korean culture.

A highlight of the cultural festivities will be a four-month exhibition of sculptures by Park Eun-sun, a renowned South Korean sculptor and recipient of the prestigious Fratelli Rosselli award. From next month, this exhibition will take place at prominent tourist locations in Rome, with the cooperation of the city’s municipal government.

The Korean ministry also plans to foster joint creative projects among young artists from both countries, focusing on fields such as opera and design. Leading artists from South Korea and Italy will mentor the participants in these exchange projects.

“The common factor between Korea and Italy is that both have grown based on their glowing histories and cultural resources to become future-oriented cultural powers leading today’s world,” Minister Yu stated. He expressed his hopes that the two-year cultural exchange would “provide innovative and creative cultural inspiration to the people of both countries.”
