The Italian Cultural Center, Minneapolis / St. Paul

Founded in 2006, the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis /St. Paul (ICC) is an independent, non-political, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization open to anyone interested in the unique phenomena of Italian culture.

Our Mission is to promote the knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the Italian language and culture through educational and cultural events in the greater Twin Cities area.

Our Vision is to create a broad and inclusive cultural community by serving as a beacon for classic and contemporary Italian culture through its language, arts, food, science, and technology.


"I feel so fortunate to be part of the Italian Cultural Center. Learning Italian, traveling, the film festival, making pasta and limoncello, and new friendships with Italians and Americans alike. It has truly and deeply enriched my life."

Sarah, St. Paul

"Trust me, we've gotten more out of the ICC than we give! The Zoom Italian lessons have been a life-line for me during the pandemic. Looking forward to the film festival."

Lisa, Minneapolis

"I started taking classes at ICC in 2012 and am still at it. If you want to learn Italian, you cannot find a better institution... The classes are well structured, and the teaching materials are carefully chosen... I have made many friends, acquaintances and have enjoyed the companionship in class. ICC is not just a place to learn Italian but a community, a family."

Ron, Minneapolis
