As stated in its article of incorporation, the mission of Casa Italiana Sociocultural Center (CISC) is "to promote, preserve and care for programs and cultural activities of the Italian-American community and present the best of Italian culture to the larger society through educational, historical and cultural Italian programs."


CISC accomplishes its mission by hosting and supporting, throughout the year, diverse events and cultural activities such as: concerts, conferences, art and crafts shows and other social gatherings. CISC also houses a rich lending library of books and DVDs in Italian language and on the Italian-American experience. 


CISC will also be supporting the establishment of the Italian American Museum in DC (IAMDC), to preserve and share the contributions that Italians and Italian-American have made in our Nation's Capital.  One museum project already underway, is the Marconi Project, an effort  to capture the memories and experiences of Italian immigrants in the greater Washington D.C. area.  By sharing their rich history and stories we plan to preserve those memories digitally and make them available for generations to come.
