Istituto Italiano di Cultura (500 – 510 West Hastings Street) Has Various Events

If you are into culture, there’s a good chance you like Italy and Italian things too.

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura in downtown Vancouver sponsors a slew of events. These include history and archeology lectures, artist receptions, Italian movie screenings, and more. Most of these events are free. For the paid events, you can get a very reasonable yearly membership.

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura is also on Facebook, and its events may be easier to follow there.

Today, I got an email with this great offer, which includes a theatre production, a membership, and a reception.

The Light in the Piazza:
Behind the Scenes
Patrick Street Productions is proud to offer members of the Istituto an exclusive glimpse of the inner workings of its cast as they perfect their performances for the upcoming play The Light in the Piazza. Set in post-war Italy, this award-winning musical recounts the love affair between an American girl and a handsome young Florentine.
On September 11, at the Norman Rothstein Theatre, enjoy a complimentary half-hour rehearsal viewing followed by a short reception and discussion with director Peter Jorgensen. IIC members will also be able to save 25% off ticket purchases through Tickets Tonight.*
To register for this exclusive event and for more information, e-mail or call 604-688-0809, extension #21.
*Valid for tickets bought by Sep. 9 for performances September 15 – 25 only, with promotional code. After Sep. 9, IIC members will still be entitled to save 15% off ticket purchases through Tickets Tonight.
For the promotional code, please contact the Istituto.
