About us

Mission

The Italian Cultural Center, Casa Italiana di Las Vegas, is a non-profit organization whose objective is to bring together Italophiles to learn more about Italian language and culture.

Our mission is the promotion and diffusion of traditional and contemporary Italian culture in all its varied forms. We aim at reaching this goal through educational programs, events and courses. Among the events are: Il Salotto Italiano, with guest speakers in a café setting, Italian movie screenings, regional dinners, social gathering such as Italian picnic, bocce tournaments and Italian karaoke night.

To fulfill our vision and mission, we rely on the support of individuals and businesses that share our values and commitment.

We emphasize the importance of teaching the Italian language as a route to understanding Italian heritage. Casa Italiana di Las Vegas offers classes at all levels taught by native speakers.

The school

The Italian courses for children follow the Reggio Emilia approach, an innovative and inspiring method to early childhood education, that uses art, science, repurposed and recycled materials to spark the child imagination while immersed in an Italian context.

La Casa Italiana is a 501(c)(3) community-based organization. Events and classes are open to members of the institute. All fees and donations are used to support La Casa Italiana programs and events.
