The CUIS is a student-run society that promotes Italian culture in Cambridge. Our aim, on the one hand, is to create a platform for exchange between different cultures, with the purpose of allowing people from all over the world to get to know Italy, its reality, traditions, and culture a bit better. On the other hand, our objective is to provide a place of exchange and a forum for discussion for Italian students and people in Cambridge who have an interest in Italy.
The Society is open to everyone who is interested in our activities, including people from outside the University and non-Italian speakers. We run weekly activities throughout term time. Activities range from cultural and informational talks, roundtables, and panel discussions on issues of common interest relating to Italy. Famous Italian journalists, scholars, and directors have been invited to give talks in the past.
We are committed to creating a friendly, welcoming environment where Italians and non-Italians alike can feel at home.
We are always looking for new Italy enthusiasts, proposals, and initiatives. If you are somehow involved in an activity that can be of interest to the Society, please let us know and we will happily share the word, as long as it is for purely cultural, informational and non-commercial purposes.
