MY friend, Prof. Piero Giacosa, of Turin, wrote to me some time ago requesting me to hand to you the enclosed paragraph, of his letter dealing with the recently initiated attempt to bring about a scheme of educational collaboration between Italy and England. Since he wrote, the announcement has been made public that the Ministry of Public Instruction in Italy has decided upon the establishment of a number of chairs of English in the Italian universities. The suggestion contained in Prof. Giacosa's paragraph has reference to the possibilities of young British graduates acting as “lectors ” for a limited period under the regular Italian professors of English, and doing work in this way as assistants to the professor.
