About This Cause
Please join us as we invest in the future of our Italian culture and heritage for the generations to come… an Italian Cultural Center bringing all of the Pacific Northwest Italian organizations and community together like never before, united for our children and grandchildren, creating a place we can all call home. For over 100 years Italian immigrants have left their imprint on the Pacific Northwest. They labored as truck farmers in the Duwamish Valley, and toiled in the Black Diamond Coal Mines. They dug the sewers and paved the streets that became the foundation of the City of Seattle. They manufactured delicious Italian specialty food products and eventually provided the first Italian American state governor in America. Italian immigrants’ strong belief in family and dedication to work was a key factor to their success. Theirs was a fervent desire to provide a better life for future generations and to keep the Italian heritage alive. We are thankful to the Italian immigrants that came before us, filling our hearts and souls with the rich culture and customs of the Italian homeland. It is in this vein that we’ve long dreamed of a central location in which to honor these forefathers and pass on their contributions as an example to the coming generations and to the broader community that holds it dear.
