Established in 1996, the Manchester branch is one of the Society’s many branches around the world.
The Society’s headquarters are in Rome, and its mission is to promote the Italian language and Italian culture abroad.
The Manchester branch does not have its own premises. Membership is open to both Italians and non-Italians, and members and supporters enjoy a wide programme of events throughout the year.
Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend.
