The Resource Center for the Teaching of Italian at UCLA

The Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles and the UCLA Center for World Languages are excited to announce the opening of The Resource Center for the Teaching of Italian at UCLA. The Center is funded by the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles, in collaboration with Fondazione Italia, a non-profit organization. The Resource Center houses a comprehensive library dedicated to supporting and enriching the teaching of Italian language and culture at the K-16 levels in Southern California. The Resource Center provides interactive learning materials such as activity kits, audio tapes, music CDs, and VHS and DVDs, as well as textbooks, dictionaries and workbooks. The Center will also serve as a base for continuing education seminars and workshops for teachers from elementary to AP Italian levels.


The Resource Center is requesting that first time borrowers come into our office to set up a membership account. After an initial visit to the center, we will be happy to mail out requested materials. Membership to our Resource Center is free.
