Società Dante Alighieri Brisbane
The main objective of the Società Dante Alighieri and the vision itself of the foundation is to share the Italian language and to maintain a passion for Italian culture among foreign and Italian people around the world.
With over 400 branches worldwide, the head office in Rome was founded in 1889 on the inspiration of the great Nobel prize winning poet, Giosuè Carducci.
The Società Dante Alighieri in Brisbane was re-founded in 1952 and continues to pursue its objectives through the work of the:
- The Dante Alighieri Society Inc.
- The Dante Alighieri Society Inc. - School of Italian
Classes are held at the Dante Alighieri Cultural Centre, 26 Gray St, New Farm, Q 4005
Friday, 17 March - Annual General Meetings
Friends of the Dante Alighieri Society Inc. - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Friday, 17 March - Welcome Party
7:00pm (immediately following AGMs)
As is our custom, the A.G.M.s will be followed by the Welcome Party. Our theme this year is
the Giro d’Italia, which celebrates its 100th race this year. You don’t have to wear lycra or ride
your bike to the Dante, just declare yourself a winner and don a pink t-shirt.
This is a great opportunity to meet fellow society members. Family and friends are most welcome. Traditionally for this function, members are asked to bring a bottle or a plate of food (preferably Italian) to share.
