NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Advanced Placement Program in Italian Language and Culture, which was suspended after the 2008-2009 school year, will be reinstated beginning September 2011.  The reinstatement comes following an effort initiated and led by the Italian Language Foundation (ILF).

“The AP Italian language program has been preserved,” said Margaret I. Cuomo, M.D., president of the ILF.  “We would like to thank the scores of people who joined the effort to ensure that generations of students will have the opportunity to learn not only a beautiful language but the history and contributions of one of the great cultures of Western civilization.”
