  • Visitor Information

Free and open to everyone, the Institute hosts a wide range of annual and monthly events so be sure to check for updates on events. Go for an authentic coffee in the café before having a browse. There are usually a small number of items by Italian artists, photographers and sculptors on display, and the Institute often collaborates with larger institutions when Italian-focused exhibitions are in town.

In addition, Italian language courses, lectures, presentations, film festivals and author readings happen regularly. Hands-down, this is still one of the best cultural centres in London.
