The Istituto Italiano di Cultura (Italian Cultural Institute) was founded in February 1971 and is also the Cultural Section of the Italian Embassy in Malta. The Institute is the symbol of Italian culture in the Maltese Islands. The main objective of the Institute is the spreading of Italian art and culture. This is pursued by means of organizing cultural events, managing a library from which all members can borrow books, and of encouraging collaboration within the field of education. It has also been responsible for the establishment of a network linking Malta’s University and study and research centres with Italian universities, state organisations and institutions. The Institute promotes events such as exhibitions, concerts, plays and conferences which are open to those who are interested in Italian culture and lifestyle.
