A few weeks ago, in the midst of the Covid-19 emergency which affected Italy significantly, we launche the open call #WeAreWithItaly: we invited several Irish personalities (and, later on, our students and international friends and anybody with a special bond or connection to Italy) to send us a reading, a poem, a picture, a message of solidarity to breach distance in this time of separation and foster unity and social cohesion during the pandemic. The response was beyond our expectation: we received many messages - hilarious, moving, thought-provoking - which are still being uploaded on our Facebook page almost every day.

A selection of contributions by (mostly) Irish personalities is also available on our website. Here's a list:

Catherine Dunne

Lia Mills

Mícheál Mac Craith

Louis de Paor

Eric Haywood

Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin

Eamonn Lynskey

Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh

Michael Moore

Paolo Bartoloni

Christine Dwyer Hickey

Cormac Ó Cuilleanáin

Billy Ramsell


In the meantime, our heartfelt thank you goes to each and every one of you who participated in this initiative. Andrà tutto bene!
