The Amerigo Association brings together Italian alumni of the International Cultural Exchanges Programs promoted by the US Department of State (Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs). Launched in May 2007 at the initiative of eight founding members from the Italian academic, business, journalistic, political and institutional worlds, it aims to encourage the exchange of personal and professional knowledge and experience gained in the USA through the study programs. The Association is inspired by the eminent Italian navigator and explorer Amerigo Vespucci, who landed in La Guajira peninsula (Colombia) in 1497. He was the first to realize that he had discovered “the fourth part of the earth” - a new Continent and not a new Eastern route to reach the Far East. merigo promotes meetings, seminars, conferences and research studies. It produces documentation and didactic material related to its aims and activities in order to continue to enhance International Cultural Exchange Programs and to improve the knowledge of US society and its institutions in Italy and vice versa. Through its website, Amerigo interacts with its members, thereby generating a wide network of contacts between Italian and American citizens and institutions. Working in cooperation with the Cultural Office of the US Embassy in Rome, the Association intends to carry out joint projects and to participate in activities and initiatives promoted also by other Italian or foreign institutions and associations, which pursue common objectives.
