Istituto cultura italiana (NGO) is a non-profit organization operating in the linguistic and literary field, active in Tbilisi (Georgia). It has two complementary aims, that is promotion of Italian culture and language in Georgia, with an inclusive and democratic orientation, and of Georgian culture at abroad, and specifically in Italy and other European countries.
From the beginning of its activities the organization has combined its cultural offer with an information processing work, with a strong emphasis on media literacy and the conscious use of new technologies.
The Institute is located in M. Kostava st. 68, (at public Georgian Broadcaster, III building, II floor) besides Heroes square. Here are the coordinates on the map.
Our office is located on the 1st floor (after the ground floor) of II building inside the Georgian broadcasting area, and is open every day Monday-Friday from 16.00/16.30 to 20.00

Since 2016 Istituto cultura italiana joined the European voluntary service programme (EVS, following ESC) hosting European young people in Georgia in order to foster intercultural-exchange, contributing to the renovation of democratic, educational, social and civil structures in Georgia, and to involve young people in activities useful both for the local community, and for their personal and professional growth.
During several projects, we have been leading an editorial board with volunteers for digital publishing, we have been organizing a language club and intercultural exchange involving the local community, organized workshops and lectures at other organizations and institutions, and carried out a daily work on media-literacy and the conscious use of new technologies.
This section contains posts disseminated through social networks along the time. We don't advocate the use of social networks, therefore they are quite rare, although they reach the aim to not being too attractive, for educational (non-commercial) purposes.
The Institute of Italian culture (NGO) provides courses of Italian language in its classrooms located in M. Kostava st. 68, (at public Georgian Broadcaster, III building, II floor), right besides Heroes square.
Courses are being held in an informal and stimulating atmosphere, with classes composed by a small number of students, every day from 16.00 to 20.00 from Monday to Friday, and are aimed at intercultural exchange, inclusion, and solidarity.
