Armenian Language and Culture Summer Intensive Course

Since 1986 the Padus-Araxes Cultural Association, which was officially founded in 1987, has been organizing every year in the month of August, a summer intensive course of Armenian language and culture for College and University students and for elder people at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. The course is organized in close collaboration with its Dipartimento di Studi dell’Asia e dell’Africa Mediterranea (since 2010, Dipartimento di Studi Eurasiatici) to which the Chair of Armenian Studies belongs.
