Dear friends of the Italian Cultural Institute,

before looking into the events programmed for the month of March, I would like to say a few words on the current phase the ICI is going through.
As most of you know, Caterina Cardona, that has served wonderfully as Director of the Institute for the past two years has terminated her mandate in February and is now back in Rome.

Due to the importance Italy attributes to culture I will personally supervise the activities of the Institute for the months to come, while the procedure for the nomination of the new Director is completed in Rome. Hence I will be addressing you from this newsletter for some time ahead.


We regret that due to the volume of requests and proposals that we receive, we cannot guarantee a reply to all.

At the Institute

British artists in Italy

The Italian Cultural Institute is proud of having supported two young British artists in the discovery of those special places in Italy where art meets craft. The project has given them the chance of improving their skills whilst working together with local artists and artisans.
