SJU Italian Heritage and Culture Month @ St. John's University, Queens Campus, Marillac Terrace | New York | United States

Each year in the month of October, a volunteer committee of Italian Americans plans a month-long celebration of culture and heritage. The theme for 2018 is “A Salute to Italian Women in America – Breaking Barriers…from Ellis Island to the Present.”

The NYC-wide IHCC is proud to salute to such an important event in the history of Italy.

For forty two years, the Italian Heritage & Culture Committee has organized events, concerts, exhibits, and lectures, celebrating Italian Culture. Each year a theme representative of the history and culture of Italy and Italian Americans is highlighted. The Committee promotes Italian culture by focusing on schools and taking a leadership role in promoting Italy and its cultural contributions. The Committee’s website, www.italyculturemonth.org, is the place to go for anything Italian: language, newspapers, culture, travel, and many other resources on Italy and Italian culture.
