What We Do

Since it was founded in 1941, the British-Italian Society has worked to promote knowledge and understanding in the UK of Italian culture, including Italy’s history, institutions, way of life, language and wider contribution to civilisation.

The Society has taken initiatives to encourage Italian studies in UK schools and universities. It also promotes friendship and networking between British, Italian and other members and friends. We work in close partnership with other Anglo-Italian organisations and societies in the UK and Italy, and organise joint events from time to time.

The British-Italian Society is a UK-registered Charity. We raise money to support projects reflecting its aims and to respond to humanitarian needs.
