Franco Pierno is Full Professor in Italian Linguistics at the University of Toronto, Canada, and "Accademico della Crusca".

In this #issnafstory, Prof. Pierno talks about his research on the history of the Italian language, with a focus on relations between language and religion and explains the crucial role of the Italian language for identity building.

He tells us why students of Italian Linguistics should come to study and work in North America and why ISSNAF is essential to bridge the humanistic studies between Italy and North America.
