Welcome!

The Center for Italian Studies supports the University of Pennsylvania’s faculty and students in developing their research and pedagogy concerning Italian history, language, culture, economy, and society. In this capacity, the CIS intends to be a hub for collaborative research initiatives and for Italian-related events occurring on the Penn campus. This website showcases these initiatives.

Please feel free to explore the Navigation Bar above. If you know of any event that can be added to the calendar Italian Events at Penn, please e-mail us at: italians@sas.upenn.edu .

Thank you.
