The Italian Cultural Institute is the symbol of Italian culture in the Maltese Islands – a culture whose roots run deep.

The main institutional objective of the Italian Cultural Institute is the spreading of Italian language, art and culture. This is pursued by means of the organization of cultural events and the management of a large and updated library, in which all members can borrow books and audio-visual materials. The Institute promotes events such as exhibitions, concerts, plays and conferences. It has also been responsible for the establishment of a network linking Malta’s University and study and research centres with Italian universities, state organisations and institutions.

The Italian Cultural Institute is also the Cultural Section of the Italian Embassy in Malta.

The general aims of the Italian Cultural Institutes are enumerated within Italian Act 401/90.
