ITALY Inspires USThis portal is curated by the Italian Embassy, Consulates and Cultural Institutes in the United States, and made possible by the daily contributions of a huge network of partners.
It’s a one-stop shop to find out what we have planned for you, from art to science, music to cinema, literature to language and Made in Italy.
It’s also a starting point to undertake a journey across Italian culture - discovering not only the Italy in the U.S., but also the Italy in all of US, and, of course, the Italy in Italy.
Style, creativity, and innovation. Excitement and inspiration. The events section allows you to search information by sector, city, or date. Our media gallery holds photos, articles, and videos about our events. Our discover Italy section has information on artistic itineraries, fashion and gastronomy, craftsmanship, innovation, cultural events, and language schools in Italy.
In 2013, the Year of Italian Culture in the United States, we offered many different and exciting stopovers. And we thank all those who have travelled with us. The journey continues. Learning and getting to know one another better, discovering, inspiring. Welcome aboard!
Our logoTwo Friend Nations. Flags close together, like the common values they express. Like a big book to be read together. Like the wings to carry you on a journey: to discover Italian culture.
There’s always a touch of Italy in American life. In family albums. In love for art, literature, music, good food. In the choice of clothing, cars, design pieces. In the emotional reactions to a movie or a landscape. In the dense network of scientific and technological collaborations.
Secretary of State John Kerry said it best: “Italian culture is everywhere in our country. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t dance to it, laugh at it, sing it, think about it, look at it, feel it, and everybody I know dreams always of coming to Italy and, at some point”.
