Las relaciones culturales y diplomáticas entre México e Italia (del siglo XVI al presente)

Laura María BRANCIFORTE

Resumen


RESUMEN: En el artículo se propone el análisis de las relaciones culturales entre México e Italia y la primera «oficialización» de las mismas. Se ha considerado necesario analizar, antes de todo, el carácter distintivo de los conceptos de relaciones culturales y de diplomacia cultural y su evolución. Hay que ir hasta el siglo XIX para poder hablar del origen de la diplomacia cultural entre México e Italia, con la firma del primer acuerdo cultural de carácter bilateral a nivel gubernamental. Sin embargo, antes de profundizar el desarrollo en el siglo XX de la diplomacia cultural, se pretende ofrecer una pincelada de la difusión espontánea de las relaciones culturales desde los primeros encuentros entre mexicanos e italianos en el siglo XVII. ABSTRACT: The aim of this article is to analyse the cultural relations between Italy and Mexico. In particular, it seeks to examine the period in which these cultural relations were regularised and placed on an official footing. In order to understand Italian-Mexican cultural relations it has been considered necessary to focus, first of all, the way in which the twin concepts of cultural relations and cultural diplomacy developed. Moreover, to speak about cultural relations at a political level, when cultural diplomacy properly began, we will need to go back to the XIX century, when the first cultural bilateral agreements between the two governments were stipulated. However, in the concluding section, before going deeply into the complex field of cultural diplomacy, we will try to outline the flourishing and spontaneous cultural relationship developed after the first approaches between Mexicans and Italians during the XVII century.
