A society celebrating Italian language and culture based in Cork

The Cork Italian Society, also known as the Dante Alighieri Society, was established in January 1957 to promote the diffusion of Italian language and culture. The Society has branches throughout the world and should appeal to all those who have visited, or who hope to visit, Italy.

It arranges lectures, concerts, film showings, and art exhibitions for the benefit of its members and in addition provides weekly Italian language classes.

Italian is not only a cultural language but a language of modern communication. Choose Italian and you will learn:

  • the language of a great modern country;
  • a language which is useful for business;
  • a language which is essential for those interested in literature, opera, theatre, cinema, and the fine arts;
  • a language important for those wishing to pursue an international career.

If you have any questions about any aspect of the Society’s activities, please send an e-mail to the following address: moc.liamtoh@krocetnad.
