The Italian Cultural Foundation at Casa Belvedere

The Italian Cultural Foundation at Casa Belvedere is a registered 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization that seeks to preserve, promote and celebrate the legacy of our ancestors by offering a myriad of cultural and educational activities, programs and special events to the public at large. From language classes to cooking classes; from art exhibits to historic photo exhibits; from film festivals to fig festivals; from Opera Luncheons to Casino Nights; from car shows to fashion shows; from group plays to one man shows; from lectures to book signings; from guest chef dining evenings to regional wine pairing dinners; from Bocce to Tombola, it all happens at Casa Belvedere! 

The 1908 building was the home of the Roebling-Stirn family and designated a New York City Landmark Building in 2001. The Stirn Mansion is listed on the New York State and National Register of Historic Places, renamed "Casa Belvedere" in 2008 meaning "house with a beautiful view." 

Mansion visits and private group or school trips are conducted and available upon request and prior scheduling.
