From January to May, the ICCA offers a traditional Italian two course meal at an economical price. Everyone is welcome and tickets are available at the door on a first-come first-serve basis. On a special event basis, we hold a Sunday Night Cinema after dinner, featuring classic and contemporary Italian movies or we may hold a special fund raiser, such as IWK Day, where proceeds are donated to a local charity.
The Italian Language School is offering organizations and schools in the Halifax Regional Municipality the opportunity to learn more about Italy and the Italian culture. Laura Nardi, Director of the Language School will send representatives from our association to visit organizations and schools to provide them with an informative presentation about Italy. If your organization is interested, please contact the ICCA Office at (902) 453-5327 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
