Arts & Culture

Italy has a long and deeply rooted artistic tradition. Even in the Neolithic Age, the inhabitants of Italy produced beautiful artefacts. Many influences from different European regions have enriched the country over the centuries and left Italy with what is possibly the largest collection of artistic treasures in the world. While many regions of Italy have developed independently after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Italian Renaissance represents the pinnacle of the art scene. Artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and later Bernini and Caravaggio have left an unparalleled artistic legacy to humanity.

In modern times, Italian art has expanded its influence and includes interior and fashion designers, music artists and performers whose art has achieved new levels of beauty and sophistication and is admired around the world.

The Italian Cultural Center promotes and supports Italian arts and culture in the Twin Cities. Our partnership with the Walker Art Center, the Minnesota Opera and the Minneapolis Institute of Art is a testament to our continued commitment.

We are proud to bring a variety of interesting cultural events certain to entertain and delight our members and friends. We invite you to sign-up for these events and keep the Italian artistic tradition alive in Minnesota.

    ITALIAN CUISINE BEFORE ITALY: A CULTURE THAT COMES FROM AFAR

    Italy’s celebrated culture, including the culinary arts, has existed since the Middle Ages, many centuries before Italy became a politically unified country. Since then, there has been a network of exchanges (products, ideas, chefs) which constituted the fundamentals of Italian cuisine and the ways of life shared throughout the country.

    Saturday, December 11th, 12:00 - 1:00 PM

    THE CENTURIES-OLD CHARACTERISTICS OF ITALIAN CUISINE

    The distinctive and "identifiable" features of Italian cuisine originate in the use of vegetables, pasta, cold cuts, and cheeses. There are specific characteristics that distinguish the Italian cuisine in all its extraordinary biodiversity of local cultures. A biodiversity reinforced by the strong relationship between court cuisine and popular cuisine, which provides the basis for the development of the former and its richness in local diversity.

    Saturday January 22 at 12 pm

    PELLEGRINO ARTUSI AND THE BIRTH OF MODERN ITALIAN CUISINE

    Thirty years after the political unity of the country, Artusi and his celebrated cookbook made a fundamental contribution to the widening of the "network" of the Italian gastronomic culture. For centuries, the Italian cuisine had remained limited to the aristocratic courts, but thanks to Artusi's book, it became a collective heritage of the nation.

    Donatella Di Pietrantonio In the last ten years, Donatella di Pietrantonio has published four remarkable books that have received highly positive reviews and literary awards: Mia madre è un fiume (Elliot Edizioni 2011; Premio Letterario Tropea), Bella mia (Elliot Edizioni 2013, Einaudi 2018: Premio Brancati 2014), L’Arminuta (Einaudi 2017; Premio Campiello 2017; translated in English as A Girl Returned, Europa Edizioni 2019), and Borgo Sud (Einaudi 2020; finalist for Premio Strega, translated as A Sister’s Story, Europa Edizioni 2022).  Di Pietrantonio’s prose is at the same time powerful and poetic. Difficult and always deeply felt family relationships are the focus of her stories: the often unspoken ties between mothers and daughters, the love and strife between sisters, the switching roles of those who are care givers and those who are cared for.

    The cultural and geographical background of Di Pietrantonio’s stories is the Abruzzo, a much less well known region of Central Italy where ancient traditions, superstitions and beliefs still permeate the lives of the rural population.  Di Pietrantonio’s storytelling can simultaneously display respect and longing as well as detachment and criticism for these deeply rooted ways of living.

    “Di Pietrantonio writes with deceptive simplicity. Every scene — every detail — is as meticulously rendered as a grain of sand. There is no sentimentality here, no excess at all, but delicacy of feeling, and depth.” Review by Natalia Holtzman, Star Tribune, August 2, 2019: 'A Girl Returned,' by Donatella Di Pietrantonio, translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein.





    Pieranna Garavaso is native Italian and came to the US to earn a PhD in Philosophy (at the U of Nebraska Lincoln). She taught Philosophy at the University of Minnesota Morris for 34 years. She was awarded the UMN Morris Alumni Association Teaching Award (2003), the Horace T. Morse Alumni Association Undergraduate Teaching Award (2004) and the UMN Morris Faculty Research Award (2017). Her areas of research include History of Analytic Philosophy, Philosophy of Mathematics, and Feminist Philosophies.  She has published articles in Italian and English and authored, co-authored or edited several books; the last collection she has edited is the Bloomsbury Companion to Analytic Feminism (2018).  As Emerita/retired she plans to devote more time to reading and discussing Italian literature.

    “Di Pietrantonio writes with deceptive simplicity. Every scene — every detail — is as meticulously rendered as a grain of sand. There is no sentimentality here, no excess at all, but delicacy of feeling, and depth.” Review by Natalia Holtzman, Star Tribune, August 2, 2019: 'A Girl Returned,' by Donatella Di Pietrantonio, translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein.
