"The Ukrainian and Italian sides have already agreed on the text of the draft program of cultural cooperation for 2020-2024. I hope that we will sign it in the near future," Tkachenko wrote on Facebook.
He added that he had met with Ambassador of Italy to Ukraine Davide La Cecilia. “We are glad that Italians have greatly appreciated cooperation with Ukraine over many years and want to strengthen it,” Tkachenko said.
The minister thanked Italy for its contribution to the development of our music and art sectors. "Italy actively cooperates and conducts joint events with the National Opera and Ballet Theatres of Lviv, Odesa, Kharkiv, and Kyiv. Our states consistently exchange museum pieces for exhibitions," Tkachenko said.
He added that Ukrainian exhibitions are often held in leading Italian museums and galleries.
During a meeting with the Italian ambassador, Tkachenko spoke about plans to launch centers for cultural services in the regions, projects on media literacy and tourism development.
At the meeting, the parties also separately focused on the protection of cultural heritage and the restoration of cultural relics. Tkachenko noted that the Italian side has vast experience in this area and will help Ukraine.
