Over the years the Italian Afro-Asiatic Meetings offer the possibility of a fruitful confrontation around the wide linguistic groups of languages that span over two continents, Africa and Asia, and along a period of time from the third Millennium BC to our days. Born as Camito-Semitic Meeting, it has progressively increased its international attractiveness, being one of the very few occasions to promote discussion and debate on the synchronic, diachronic or comparative analysis of languages belonging to the Afro-Asiatic linguistic family (Berber, Chadic, Cushitic, Egyptian, Omotic, and Semitic)
