La rete degli Istituti italiani di cultura in Canada


La rete degli Istituti italiani di cultura in Canada


The Italian Cultural Institutes in Montreal and Toronto, and the Cultural Section of Italian Consulate General in Vancouver, play a crucial role determining policy for the promotion of Italian culture in Canada.  They organize Italian language courses, maintain libraries with a total of over 700,000 books, in addition to video and multimedia material, and they organize a wide variety of  successful cultural events. 

More specifically, their principal areas of activity are:

the teaching of the Italian language at the Institutes themselves, and Italian language instructor training;

the promotion of Italian cinema through participation in international Film Festivals in Canada and retrospectives of Italian directors and/or actors;

the promotion of Italian theatre arts through performances by Italian theatre companies or by supporting the production of Italian plays by local theatre companies;

exhibitions that highlight Italian design and technology as well as art;

music concerts by both well-known and up-and-coming musicians and composers;

events directed at the large Italian and Italian-Canadian community in Canada
