This institution partners with NIAF Museum on Italian Immigration on 19th St NW to offer a look at the Italians’ hardships and achievements when first coming to the United States. Aside from museums, Washington D.C. is also an Italian haven for cultural events. Visitors and residents alike can catch Italian films at the local AFI Silver Theater on Colesville Rd, which is partially sponsored by the Italian government. Last year, it attracted thousands of attendees! Another perk of learning Italian in Washington D.C. is tuning in to the Georgetown University Italian department’s weekly radio show that started in 2012, which features both contemporary and traditional Italian music, along with relevant discussions about culture. What better way to practice your Italian skills?
