Italian Cultural Institute of Pretoria

The Italian Cultural Institute of Pretoria is the cultural office of the Italian Diplomatic Mission in South Africa. It was established in 1998.
Our offices are in Pretoria, opposite the Embassy of Italy, George Avenue, Arcadia 803, Pretoria.
Our mission is to promote the Italian language and culture in South Africa. Supporting the activities already undertaken by Embassies and Consulates, the Italian Cultural Institute identifies the most appropriate ways to promote Italy’s image as a centre of cultural production, conservation and dissemination, from the classical age to the present day, and establishes contacts to facilitate the integration of Italian operators in cultural exchanges and production on an international scale. Our jurisdiction is the entire territory of South Africa. We have also participated in events in neighbouring countries that don’t have their own Institute (Namibia, Madagascar).
We are active in the following main promotional areas: language courses, exams for Certificates of Italian as a Foreign Language (CILS), study grants, library and events.
