All Things Italian!



The Italians of Louisiana

"Welcome to the American Italian Cultural Center in New Orleans! One of the city’s secret multicultural gems. Explore our museum, rent our beautiful venue ideally located in the Warehouse District, take an Italian language class, have fun in our many events or travel with us to our lovely Italia!"


Built in 1908 as the former Mater Dolorosa Church, the museum allows visitors to experience the local history of the Sicilian immigrants who lived in Independence, LA.


"The Società Italiana di Mutua Beneficenza Cefalutana was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 19, 1887.  The original purpose of the Società Cefalutana was for mutual benefit (Mutua Beneficenza) of the many immigrants who came from Cefalu`.  Thanks to their efforts, and those who followed them, the ideals of the Società have not changed.  Although the benefit of burial in the Società mausoleum and the celebration of the feast of Gesù Salvatore are our main function, the Società today provides an opportunity for social interaction and sharing of our common heritage."


"This great organization allows all of the Italian Americans in New Orleans to enjoy the company of one another in a fun and festive environment. We celebrate life in appreciation of our heritage and strive to keep it significant in our city as it has been for over 100 years. We sincerely invite you, as an Italian American, to join the Italian American St Joseph Society and celebrate your heritage with us in New Orleans."

"The Elenian Club is a cornerstone of the New Orleans Italian community. Established in 1934, its members gather year round for social and fundraising activities that support local charities. It's all about fun, food, friends, family and philanthropy. Keeping Italian culture and traditions alive!"


"Organized in 1972 as an umbrella organization of Italian Heritage Organizations from Texas to Virginia. The Federation represents those organizations at the national level and works to promote the events of organizations to each other. The Federation offers assistance to individuals seeking to join or create an Italian Heritage organization. College and Young Italian Professional Programs are part of our initiatives."
