The Italian Cultural Society of Naples, Florida, was started in 1998 by a small group of Italophiles who wanted to bring to Southwest Florida the joy of experiencing Italian culture on a regular basis. Today we continue their initiative with 500 members, whose lives we enrich with all things Italian. Our programs embrace the many and varied elements of this rich culture, including music, art, film, history, literature, and the beautiful Italian language.

In addition to enhancing their awareness of Italian culture, our members often build on the friendships they form while participating in the diverse cultural and social opportunities our programming provides throughout the season.
