Il Circolo Italian Cultural Association, founded in 1994, is a registered charity aiming to promote and enhance the knowledge of Italian culture in the UK.
Il Circolo runs a scholarships and donations programme to help young people in their research work. This year Il Circolo has raised funds for research on autoimmune diseases,such as rheumatoid arthritis, led by professor C. Pitzalis’ team at the William Harvey Institute.
Furthermore, Il Circolo has been able to extend its funding to the arts and is pleased to have cooperated in the restoration of some valuable paintings belonging to the Italian Cultural Institute.
A publication has been produced to explain and illustrate the development of this project.
