The Italian Cultural Association of Southern Illinois (ICASI)

ICASI was formed in January, 2010.  We are a not for profit organization based in Edwardsville, Illinois.

Mission statement:  Our mission is to promote an appreciation of Italian culture, the contributions of Italians around the world as well as the contributions of Italian-Americans to America and to our region in particular. We will accomplish our mission with programs in three spheres:  education, culture, and business.

We will work closely with our community to promote our heritage and provide programs that will enrich our knowledge and understanding of our deep historical heritage.  We will work closely with Southern Illinois University to support and strengthen the study of the Italian language, to promote study programs to Italy for students at SIUE with scholarships and financial assistance as well as encourage the university to set up an exchange program with an Italian university and to work closely with the university by offering assistance to students from Italy interested in attending SIUE. Our intention is to enrich our community with our history, past and present, and to foster possibilities related to cross-cultural business and educational relationships.
