The task of the Italian Cultural Institute is to improve awareness of Italian culture in China and organize events and initiatives open to all those who want to know more about Italy and its culture.
The IIC is thus open to all friends who love Italian music, art, literature, language and film and it also organizes meetings and conferences dedicated to Italian technological and scientific excellence.
The “Italian way of life” is the result of multiple factors: the beauty of the Italian cities and their urban planning, the attention to food, respect for the environment and the pleasure of elegance. All these elements are connected to a culture widespread in the territory, including numerous production companies capable of combining the wealth of tradition with the very latest technologies. This is the foundation of Italian fashion and Italian design.
The IIC also organizes events and meetings to bring this precious heritage to the attention of the general public and ignite and renew curiosity towards Italy and the beauty of all that is Italian.
Together with the Italian Embassy, the IIC provides support foro young people who wish to complete a study period in Italy.
The IIC is pleased to strengthen collaboration and friendship with its Chinese friends and is open to collaboration with Chinese public and private institutions and bodies, even taking its events outside the Institute’s own spaces to reach increasing numbers of Chinese people of all ages.
