To honor and celebrate the American Italian Culture of Louisiana, past, present and future

The American Italian Cultural Center promotes the culture and heritage of the American Italian community by offering Italian language and culture classes, seminars, concerts, and events. This center is the leading institution preserving and celebrating the American Italian history of Louisiana. The impact is felt through increased awareness of how the American Italian community has shaped local, regional, and national history and culture. Our values include education, inspiration, high quality, collaboration, and financial integrity. We provide programming opportunities that allow the community to come together to learn about the people, places, and events of our rich history and continuing significance.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1489456638797{padding-bottom: 15px !important;}”]
