Center for Italian Culture


To encourage the understanding and appreciation of all aspects of Italian language and culture, including ancient and contemporary studies, and the Italian experience in the New World. 

Through an initial gift from Mrs. Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio of Phoenix, Arizona, the Center was established in 1999 as one of the University's community outreach programs. Several major gifts have been added to an endowment fund that provides annual income for the Cultural Series and the Center's Italian language and culture initiatives.

The CIC Archives at Fitchburg State can help you preserve your Italian heritage artifacts for future generations. Your photos, paper documents, films, paintings, sculptures, biographies, etc. will be shared online and made available for scholarly research. Please feel free to contact the CIC Archives via email with any questions.
