The Italian Embassy and cultural institute want to make it easier for others to experience the Italian way of life.The year-long program aims to hold dozens of events, all connected to Italian traditions or ways that Italian and Arab cultures have melded throughout history.Among the Italian contributions to various festivals, concerts and plays over the course of 2018, the highlights include an exhibition from Rome's MAXXI National Museum of Art – which through 20 May is hosting "Home Beirut," a show of work by 35 Lebanese contemporary artists, as part of its Sounding the Neighbors series – and BIPOD, the Beirut International Platform of Dance.The program's finale will be the opening night concert at December's seasonal classical music festival Beirut Chants, with another concert from the Anno Rossiniano program.The Italians' evolving 2018 cultural program can be found at iicbeirut.esteri.it.
