A Vietnamese cultural festival entitled "Dragon and butterfly" will take place in Rome, Italy, from June 16 to July 16.

This will be the largest Vietnamese cultural festival over held in Rome, expressing Italian people's love towards the land and people of Viet Nam, said Italian Ambassador to Viet Nam Alfredo Matacotta Cordella.

On the occasion, the Vittoriano Museum, the most famous museum in Rome, will display contemporary artists' works on June 16.

An exhibition of photos on the daily life, natural beauty, land and people of Viet Nam taken by Ambassador Cordella will open in Rome in June 26.

Other programmes will take place in Rome during the festival such as a Vietnamese film week and an exhibition of designer Minh Hanh's fashion collection. Vietnamese cuisine evenings will be organised in Citta del Gusto.

Besides cultural activities, seminars on tourism and economic cooperation between Italy and Viet Nam will be held in the capital.

"We believe that Rome's audience will warmly welcome the Vietnamese Cultural Festival," said the city's chairman Enrico Gasparra. "Viet Nam is loved for its history, nature and people. It is a country that everyone wants to visit. We are happy to make contributions to further boosting the fine traditional relationship between the two countries."

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
