The Hong Kong branch of the Dante Alighieri Society is a charitable institution that was established in 1934. Part of a global organisation committed to promoting Italian language and culture internationally, our Society links Hong Kong to the heart of Rome.

Once located in Causeway Bay, in 2021 we moved to the Hong Kong Art Centre in Wan Chai, allowing us to better pursue our mission. Such a big change was made possible by our honoured founding sponsors (in alphabetical order: the Chinese Italian Cultural Society, Delvis, the Italian Cultural Society of Hong Kong, Leo Tung-Hai Lee and Vincent Lee Foundation Limited, Prof. Alice Chiu, Dr Richard Lee, Rusy & Purviz Shroff Charitable Foundation, Sino Group, WindTre), as well as all the sponsors that have been supporting us throughout the years.

With our team of qualified native Italian-speaking teachers, we offer a wide variety of Italian courses for adults and children from beginner to fully proficient students. We offer group courses as well as individual classes, both in person and online. We also organise on-site tailor-made courses and workshops specifically designed to meet the needs of your organisation.

Besides this, we also offer exciting cultural and social events monthly, a rich library of Italian resources and school holiday educational activities. Furthermore, we provide a range of certified professional translation services using a team of dedicated native speakers.

To carry out our mission we collaborate with the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong, the Italian Chamber of Commerce, the Italian Cultural Institute, our Corporate Members and other Italian associations that constantly support us in the organization of activities aimed at promoting Italian culture and language such as concerts, wine tasting events and cooking classes.

The Dante Alighieri Society is the only institution in Hong Kong accredited to administer the PLIDA Tests (for the assessment of Italian as a foreign language), officially recognized by the Italian Government and the European Union.

Members of the Dante Alighieri Society in Hong Kong can enjoy various privileges such as a discount offer for Italian wine and food purchases as well as for translation services and cultural events attendance.
