The Ministry of Education has sent a number of graduates of the Italian Language Department to the Italian capital, Rome, as part of a training program on methods of teaching.

The ministry indicated on its Facebook page that the 30 trainees had received intensive closed-circuit training before joining the Italian university.

The Italian ambassador to Libya, Giuseppe Buccino, had indicated, in a meeting with the Minister of Education, Mussa al-Maqryif, last November, the role of the Italian side and its seriousness in teaching the Italian language to Libyan students, stressing his country's intention to launch training programs to qualify teachers of the Italian language.
