On June 26th, 2012 the Confucius Institute, the Regional Education Office of Piedmont and Piedmont schools of all levels and grade signed the Piedmont Region Schools Network Agreement. The Network Agreement, a pilot project in Italy, aims to creating a multilingual school program for teaching Chinese language and culture throughout Piedmont territory.
School Deans, Confucius Institute and Regional Education Office of Piedmont meet up at least twice a year to discuss the implementation of the activities in the schools and plan new ones according to the schools specific needs.
Chinese language and culture courses are completed by cultural activities such as calligraphy, music, papercut and kite making workshops, as well as conferences on Chinese culture, and recreational activities for the youngest students.
