The Center for Italian Studies

The Center for Italian Studies was created in 1978 by the University of Pennsylvania President Martin Meyerson and by the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences Vartan Gregorian, with the endorsement of the Republic of Italy. It was the first such center in the United States. 

The Center supports the University of Pennsylvania's students and faculty in developing their general education, research, teaching, and promotional activities concerning Italian history, culture, economy, and society; it promotes the circulation in Philadelphia, the United States and abroad, of the research on Italian topics developed at Penn; finally, it facilitates the communications between the University of Pennsylvania and: the Italian community in Philadelphia, the institutions representing the Italian Republic in the United States, and the centers and cultural organizations that promote Italian-related issues in the US.
