Benvenuti all’Italian Cultural Center!


Welcome to the Italian Cultural Center! 

Whether you are a native of Italy, an Italian born outside of the Italian territory, a descendent of Italians, or someone who is just curious about Italian language and culture, your have come to the right place. 

Since 2006, the Italian Cultural Center has been the epicenter of a vibrant community with a strong focus on Italian culture and language. 

I encourage you to check out our events and language classes.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that values inclusivity and diversity. We believe “Italian-ness” comes in many different flavors, shapes, colors, and varieties. We reject all stereotypes. 

Come visit our beautiful new location in the lively North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis

We welcome your participation and any input you may have related to the ICC.

Grazie e a presto!
