Inspired by the poet Giosuè Carducci (Nobel Prize in Literature 1906), the Dante Alighieri Society was founded in 1889 with the aim of promoting Italian culture and language throughout the world.

The Society was named after Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), a pre-Renaissance poet from Florence and author of “The Divine Comedy” who is considered the father of the Italian language.

From its very beginning the Dante Alighieri Society received an enthusiastic welcome particularly among the many Italian communities that had established themselves throughout the world. The Institutional Society set up its present headquarters in the prestigious Palazzo Firenze in Rome. There are currently over 430 Branches (Committees) around the world with the number continuing to grow – www.LaDante.it

Primary purpose, as stated in Article 1 of the Articles of Association, is to “protect and promote the Italian language and culture in the world, reviving the spiritual ties of compatriots abroad with the mother country and nurturing among the foreigners love and the cult of Italian civilization”.
