Calligraphy competition winners awarded in Milan


The staff of the Russian Center in Milan met with the Italian participants of the 7th International Calligraphy Competition dedicated to the Year of Science and Technology. During the meeting, the winners and participants were awarded certificates, books, Russkiy magazines and other prizes and gifts.

Parents of the students of the Harmony Russian Training Center noted the importance of holding such contests, as they motivate young people to write in Russian. While writing the famous Pushkin's lines "Oh, how many wonderful discoveries we have..." from Eugene Onegin, they learned a poem.

The staff of the Russian Center invited everyone to take part in the Book Week, which will begin on November 19.
