Nicolo Costantini, first secretary of the Italian Embassy in Hanoi, says: “Italy is a great power in terms of culture. We have the highest number of UNESCO sites, actually 51 in Italy. We have a great deal of cultural heritage, as well as Vietnam. That is why we are very happy to create a program that joins several aspects of our cultures. In the evening of the 2 of June, Le Phung Hieu Street will become an Italian square. Italian music and Vietnamese music will accompany a fashion show organized by the Italy-Vietnam Fashion Council.”
