AIIC 60th Anniversary gala celebration in Milan, 29 Nov – 1 Dec 2013

Interactive art installations, contemporary dance and the awarding of the AIIC Malintzin prize headline an event evoking the magic of language.


Come celebrate AIIC’s 60th anniversary in the dynamic city of Milan, where history and modernity walk hand in hand. A magical experience awaits as we commemorate the modern story of interpreting and the people on both side of the microphone.

The last 60 years have been marked by historical events that changed the world. As interpreters we saw and heard that history as it unfolded – and gave voice to many of the actors in the drama so all could understand. We have felt the magic of the moment and the alchemy of words. And that is what we will share with you during 3 days of festivities in Milan.
