We are an organization of Italophiles who love and celebrate the rich, cultural heritage of Italy in all of its aspects, for personal enjoyment and enrichment.

In the field of education, culture is defined in terms of “big C” such as literature, music, art etc., and “little c” comprised of values, beliefs, behavior and so on.  The picture of culture is not complete if it only focuses on its most visible aspects. Our programs include lectures on art, literature, music, and history; concerts; films; and Italian language classes. We also feature a program of special-interest, smaller groups called Amicizia with Book Discussions and Travel Forums. Our events, big or small, take place in a typically warm Italian atmosphere where friendships are born and nourished as Italian values and memories are relived and shared. Viva l’amicizia! Chi trova un amico trova un tesoro! He who finds a friend finds a treasure, says an Italian proverb.

As in past summers, we will hold monthly dinners from May to September for members who are in Naples. The rest of our events begin in October, and feature 6 luncheons with expert speakers on a wide range of topics, a musical event with a reception, a Christmas dinner dance, and one special event. Find out more about these events on our website and in Amici, our newsletter.

In this, our 2024-25 season, we look forward to exciting, educational, and entertaining events. It is with much gratitude towards our Founders and early members that we celebrate our wonderful Society, which they created twenty six years ago. ICS enriches the life of its members, as well as the Naples community. We’d love to have you join us!

I look forward to personally welcoming you at our events.

A presto.
