The “Dictionary Day” aims to investigate the fundamental role of dictionaries not only as a valuable tool for language learning, but also as a historical and cultural document. In this edition, the “Dictionary Stories” are also stories of curious and multifaceted characters such as Giuseppe Baretti or Francesco Valentini who became mediators between cultures; but dictionaries have also “made history,” such as that of Dmitry Ushakov who, in 1940, became the bearer of the new values of the Russian Revolution.
In the afternoon, workshops dedicated to dictionaries of single languages.
