We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and preserve Italian culture, traditions, heritage and the Italian language. We sponsor social, culinary and educational events to foster appreciation and respect in the community for the rich contributions that Italians have made locally and throughout the world. We welcome members of all ages and backgrounds.
There are many benefits of membership in the Italian Cultural Center!
The Italian Cultural Center of Western Mass, Inc. (the "ICC") is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 to promote and celebrate our Italian culture and heritage in all its facets.
Previously, dozens of local Italian groups had been created to celebrate and foster specific aspects of Italian culture, towns or regions of Italy, Italian/American war veterans, religious organizations, etc., but the ICC celebrates "all things Italian"!
The ICC was originally located in a building on Acushnet Ave., and in 2006 moved to a temporary location on Maple St. while we searched for a suitable building to purchase as our own.
Finally in 2008 we purchased the former primary school (originally a fire station) located at 56 Margaret St., in the heart of Springfield's South End. With our foundation firmly beneath us, we have created many new successful events, have heightened our presence in the Springfield area and Western Mass. in general, and our membership has grown substantially!
