Commercial and cultural counselor at the Italian Embassy in Havana, Marco Giomini, said this decoration is awarded every year by the Italian President.

The official ceremony will take place in Salon 250 of the University of Havana, where the Italian ambassador in Cuba, Domenico Vecchioni, will invest Arango Polanco, who is also General Coordinator of the Postgraduate Course on the Italian Language and Culture, with the First Degree Knighthood.

Giomini noted that the Italian Foreign Minister, along with the Academia della Cruzca, have organized a program of activities throughout this week to take place at the University of Havana, the Dante Alighieri Society, Ruben Martinez Villena Library, and the Havana Historian’s Office.

The week, called "The Italian and the sea", will run until Sunday 28.
It will include talks, lectures and the screening of films that will be donated later to the bibliographic funds of the Dante Alighieri Society in Havana.

Giomini also said Cuba is putting the finishing touches on the program of the 10th Italian Culture Week in Cuba, which this year will be dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi on the occasion of his 200th birthday.
