About Us

Benvenuti all’Italian Cultural Center!

Whether you are finding us for the first time, or you have been a loyal member since 2006, it is my distinct privilege to welcome you all.

Since its inception, ICC has been dedicated to promoting Italian language and culture in all its forms and from all regions of the country. Our native-speaking staff is eager to share their first-hand experience and cultural background of Italian life and cultural traditions. We are proud to live and work in Minnesota, a state that has become our home and where we have found so many fans of the celebrated culture we promote.

Our new location, situated in the vibrant North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis, is the perfect setting for our classes and events. It is with great joy that I invite you to sign-up for our programs, visit our new home and meet our amazing staff.

A presto!

Sandra Gengler
