Istituto Italiano di Cultura – Partner of the Italian Fusion Festival
The Italian Fusion Festival is proud to present the event partner Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Dublin.
Currently active across the major cities of the five continents the Istituto Italiano di Cultura network represents not only an ideal meeting point for intellectual and artistic dialogue, but also an excellent opportunity for Italian and foreign citizens who wish to establish or maintain a relationship with our country.
The Istituto Italiano di Cultura is the fundamental reference point for the Italian community abroad and centre of the growing demand for Italian culture around the world. The network offers the possibility to discover and learn more about Italian language and culture by offering courses, operating libraries and providing educational and editorial material; moreover, it supports the initiatives that enhance intercultural dialogue based on the principles of democracy and international solidarity.
The Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Ireland was established in 1954. It is situated in an early nineteenth century Georgian building in the centre of Dublin, in Fitzwilliam Square, architecturally one of the most ‘historic’ and interesting squares in the city, facing a beautiful private park.
The Istituto Italiano di Cultura was founded with the aim of fostering and increasing the already existing cultural links between Ireland and Italy through joint initiatives in the fields of education, culture and science.
These initiatives range from the promotion of teaching of Italian with relevant opportunities for cultural exchange, to the valuation of academic qualifications and the awarding of Italian Government scholarships to Irish scholars, University students, researchers and artists.
With regard to cultural activities, the Institute strongly believes in co-operation with Irish institutions and other European cultural bodies in Ireland, while providing regular cultural services through various facilities: library, language courses and lectures on various topics embracing different areas of Italian culture to be given either at the Institute or at other venues by eminent scholars and specialists.
