Pirandello Institute of Italian Language and Culture

Our Mission
The Pirandello Institute has long been a dream of Vita Mesnick.

Dreams come true every day but, what does it take for dreams to become reality? Love, patience and a lot of dedication. The Pirandello Institute is the fruit of Vita’s passion, effort and commitment. We offer classes, workshops, and lectures in Italian language and culture to adults and children whose roots are Italian and those who have a love for Italy, Italian literature, cuisine, and music.
