With over 30 years history to its credit, the Italian Cultural Institute in Osaka is one of the most important centres for the study of the Italian language and culture. It holds and supports events, and language, culture and gastronomy courses. It periodically hosts seminars and conferences with the most important Italian and Japanese teachers and cultural experts.
Every year, hundreds of students attend the Institute’s Italian courses. The curriculum is as varied as it is broad, with classes suited to the most diverse needs: conversation, private and group classes, art history and architecture courses and a section specifically dedicated to children.
