Support the Italian Cultural Institute

For many years the IIC has brought Italian culture to San Francisco and the Bay Area. Propelling a wide range of cultural initiatives and events, the Institute has become an essential point of reference for the ever-growing exchange between Italy and the US.
If this endeavor has truly lived on, it is also because of the many individuals who share a passion for Italy. We come from all walks of life. What unites us is the desire to invest in inspiring the next generation, preserving the culture and providing the foundation for a better and more interesting way of life. When you attend an event, take a language class or just tell your friends about IIC, you learn, grow, strengthen our community, and support a unique Bay Area institution.
