The mission of the Italian Cultural Center, according to Dr. Dominic Candeloro, historian, Casa Italia Library Curator and director of the Italian Cultural Center, is to "Save our Stories" before they are lost forever.
IA Literati 2022 brings together Italian Americans and Italophiles with the goals of saving our stories, contributing to our common history, and maintaining our Italianità.
“Our event is a great place for readers to immerse themselves in the work of local Italian-American writers, and a great place for Italian-American writers to network and find out what their fellow authors are doing,” says Italian Cultural Center librarian and event founder Dominic Candeloro. “We proudly support Italian-American authors and we encourage the rest of the community to do the same.”
