Welcome to the

Italian Club of Salt Lake



A number of Italian scholars and professionals living in the Salt Lake City area ensure a strong pool of teachers, presenters, and seminar leaders that help share their knowledge and passion within the ICSL. Past and present University of Utah students and staff also ensure the maintenance and proper functioning of the Italian club. Students often volunteer their time and energy for various activities making the ICSL successful in all its endeavors.

The purpose of the Italian Club of Salt Lake is to preserve, celebrate and foster pride in Italy and Italian culture. We provide opportunities to participate in the authentic Italian experience by sponsoring lectures, classes, study groups, and cultural activities devoted to Italian language, history, literature, cuisine, art and all things Italian.

The Italian Club of Salt Lake (ICSL) was established to promote Italian culture in the Salt Lake community through education and social activities. Our social events serve as an excellent opportunity to meet individuals of similar backgrounds, interests and a love for Italy! Plus, students of the language will be able to put into practice the the vocabulary and concepts learned in the classroom. ALL CLASSES ARE TEMPORARILY BEING HELD ONLINE DUE TO THE CURRENT ONGOING SITUATION.
