On September 4, 2014, the Confucius Institute at University of Rome La Sapienza, Sapienza University of Rome in Italy and Kansai University in Japan jointly held the Language and Culture Communication Forum for Chinese, Italian and Japanese Postgraduates at Sapienza University of Rome.

Five years have passed since the forum was founded in 2010. This time, in the one-day forum, professors and researchers from the Confucius Institute and the two universities made extensive and profound study and discussion in the fields of arts, literature, linguistics, and history, etc.

At the beginning of the forum, Professor Federico Masini, Vice Rector of Sapienza University of Rome and Italian Director of the Confucius Institute, Professor UCHIDA Keiichi and Professor Shen Guowei from the Faculty of Foreign Language Studies of Kansai University, and Professor Matilde Mastrangelo, Dean of the Italian Institute of Oriental Studies at Sapienza University of Rome, gave opening speeches respectively.

Scholars from the Confucius Institute at University of Rome La Sapienza, Sapienza University of Rome, and Kansai University learned from each other in the forum and discussed the latest achievements in current academic field. On behalf of the Confucius Institute, Jiang Ting, a government-dispatched teacher, proposed a new perspective and concept on Chinese language teaching in the forum.

The academic communication of the Confucius Institute at University of Rome La Sapienza has no longer been limited between China and Italy, but involved more countries. This facilitates comparison and learning between teaching of Chinese language and other languages, and also pushes the Confucius Institute to put forward more insights and methods on the improvement of Chinese language teaching according to local conditions.
