Founded by a small group of Italian business people who believe that the Italian language, along with literature and art, are fundamental factors in the creation of productive citizens of tomorrow, ILICA promotes events in the fields of art, medicine, science, and tourism; as well as other types of initiatives that unite Italian culture with those who share an interest in learning the Italian language as a key to understanding Italian culture within the context of the 21st century.
