The Dante Alighieri Society of Washington offers a language program with all levels of Italian and a rich program of free public lectures in English and Italian (preceded by a community dinner) related to the art, history, literature, music, culture, travel, cuisine etc. of Italy.   We are a co-sponsor of important Italian-themed events such Festa Italiana, the International Film Festival and the Italian Film Festival at SIFF and we publish a monthly newsletter, La Voce della Dante, with news, photos, recipes, stories.  Many people come to one of our events - such as the annual wine tasting dinner or the Christmas celebration for children - and soon after fall in love with Dante and become a member.  You will find DAS meetings to be friendly and welcoming.   We embrace anyone who enjoys all things Italian, and desires to expand their knowledge of a beautiful country and its people. 


  • Join us for bi-monthly meetings September through May - in English and Italian.
