Italian academy of language establishes Facebook page


Florence, November 5 - For more than 400 years,
Florence's Accademia della Crusca has studied and promoted the
Italian language.
And now, it's getting into social networking.
Through its own 2.0 project, the academy is boosting its
Internet presence by hosting a Facebook page, establishing a
Twitter account, and activating a channel on YouTube in order to
transmit video lectures, discussions, and other forms of
research on linguistic issues.
"Social networking platforms are bringing changes to
language, just as radio and TV did," said Academy President
Nicoletta Maraschio.
"This should be seen and studied".
Maraschio said the academy is also studying how the Italian
language, especially vocabulary, evolved through the 19th and
20th centuries.
This year, the academy marks the 400th anniversary of the
publication of its first dictionary, produced in 1612.
On Thursday, a delegation from the academy will travel to
Rome to meet the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano to
mark the occasion.
