RADIO DANTE HISTORY
Radio Dante started to be broadcast on 3rd March 2012, founded by Director Dr. Giulia Portuese-Williams of the European Cultural Centre La Dante in Cambridge. The main objective of La Dante is the dissemination of European languages and cultures, in particular Italian, Spanish and English.
In 8 years, we have produced more than 100 radio programmes, trained 60 interns in radio broadcasting and marketing, built collaborations with Colleges and Universities all over Europe and with La Dante Alighieri Society’s 500 offices around the world.
