Appassionati Circle



2013 has been declared the “Year of Italian Culture in the United States”. In San Francisco and in the Bay Area, Italian culture is being showcased at its best in Arts, Music, Theater, Architectural Heritage, Cinema, Literature and Language. Programs are also focused on the aspects of Italian contemporary life that are shaping global cultural trends worldwide: Design, Fashion, Food, Modern Education, Sports, Sustainability, Technology and Innovation.

Our program of events offers an opportunity for all of you who share a passion for Italy to associate your names with the best of this great nation. Whether you are Italian, you cherish your Italian heritage or simply admire Italy’s cultural excellence, you can become a leader in this historic San Francisco-Bay Area Year cultural celebration. Join us in bringing 50+ world-class events to life, which will stimulate senses, inspire minds, touch souls and renew Italian pride in the United States: become a member of the Appassionati Circle at a level that is comfortable to you!

There are several donor levels, according to your passion for Italy and your comfort. Your donation can be directed to support the whole Year or specific events.

Depending on what level you join the Appassionati Circle, you may be entered – for instance – into a drawing for a trip for two to Naples, obtain a VIP “Via del Vino” wine-tasting pass, or be invited to the Official America’s Cup Tri-Team reception promoted by the Consulates of Italy, Sweden and New Zealand. All donors receive Membership to the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, commemorative merchandise and public recognition.

Donations are tax deductible by the fullest extent allowed by law.
