Italy Banning English From Official Communications

italy banning english


Italy’s Brothers of Italy party, led by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, has proposed new legislation that could result in fines of up to €100,000 for the use of English and other foreign words in official communications.



The bill, introduced by Fabio Rampelli, a member of the lower chamber of deputies and supported by the prime minister, aims to combat “Anglomania” and preserve the Italian language. The proposed legislation requires all public officials to have a strong command of Italian in both written and oral communication and prohibits the use of English in official documentation, including job titles and acronyms.




Foreign entities operating in Italy would also be required to have Italian language editions of their internal regulations and employment contracts. The bill has yet to be debated in parliament.
