Rudi Vecoli Library

Named after the late historian of Italian-American history, the Rudi Vecoli Library of the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis / St. Paul houses over 2,000 books in Italian and in English. In addition to the classics, the center offers contemporary Italian literature - books currently read and discussed in Italy. We invite you to come to the center and browse through the library!
