The Confucius Institute was established in Rome in 2006 thanks to the Department of the Italian Institute of Oriental Studies (ISO), in collaboration with the University of Foreign Languages in Beijing (BFSU), and the support of the Hanban (National Office for Teaching of Chinese as a foreign language). It was the first Confucius Institute to be founded in Italy and the second in Europe, with the aim of promoting cultural exchanges between the two countries and organizing cultural activities, conferences, exhibitions and shows.
Training and refresher courses are held annually at the institute for teaching Chinese as a foreign language. The Confucius Institute also offers scholarships and study stays at leading Chinese universities.
It is also home to the international language proficiency exam HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test) and HSKK (HSK Speaking Test).
