Our Mission

Il Punto! Italian Cultural Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in Seattle in November 2014.

The name “Il Punto!” – Italian for “the Point” – has been chosen with the idea of creating a center that could become the “punto d’incontro” (meeting point) for all the Italians, Italian-Americans and anyone in the Northwest region of the US, who is passionate about Italy and/or wants to learn more about it.

We strive to promote the Italian culture in the PNW – Pacific Northwest by organizing and sponsoring events and activities that can bring together all Italians, Italo-Americans and people passionate about Italian culture.

At the same time, we aim to provide those basic welcoming services to the Italians, living in the Northwest of the USA, to make their adaptation period easier and enjoyable.
