The SLORI (Slovenski raziskovalni inštitut/Slovene Research Institute) presents an important selection of studies, published in the United Kingdom, on the Slovenian minority in Italy
On the 3rd of September, at 5.00 pm at the lecture hall of the Narodni dom – Dipartimento di Scienze Giuridiche, del Linguaggio, dell’Interpretazione e della Traduzione – Norina Bogatec and Zaira Vidau will present the book A Community at the Heart of Europe: Slovenes in Italy and the Challenges of the Third Millennium.
The volume, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in April 2020, traces the recent history of the Slovenian national community in Italy in the light of the events that have taken place in the border area between Italy and Slovenia in the last twenty-five years.
Norina Bogatec and Zaira Vidau, editors of the volume and researchers from the Slovenski raziskovalni inštitut (Slovenian Research Institute) of Trieste, will outline the evolution of intercultural relations between the Slovenian and Italian communities in Friuli Venezia Giulia, up to cross-border cooperation, keeping the eye also on other European multicultural communities, in order to have a broader overview of discussing problems related to the coexistence of two different national communities in the same territory.
