Our Cultural Institute is located in the centre of Berlin, not far from Potsdamer Platz, inside the historical building of the Italian Embassy. A wonderful inner courtyard and a terrace overlooking the Tiergarten and the city host open-air events and art installations. Our recently renovated conference room and the gallery are the ideal setting for concerts, film screenings, conferences, readings and art projects.
