December 2014

Just a few lines, dear friends of the Italian Cultural Institute in London, a few lines to mention our events for the month of December. We had an intense autumn season and now, before the run-up to the holidays, we offer you a few dates, as we know you are all so busy around an already Christmassy and madly chaotic London.

At the Institute

British artists in Italy

The Italian Cultural Institute is proud of having supported two young British artists in the discovery of those special places in Italy where art meets craft. The project has given them the chance of improving their skills whilst working together with local artists and artisans.
