The Italian Cultural Foundation at Casa Belvedere is a not-for-profit organization that celebrates everything Italian via a myriad of exceptional public program offerings: From language classes to cooking classes; from art & photo exhibits to film & fig festivals; from Opera Luncheons to Casino Nights; from car shows to fashion shows; from live concerts to theatrical performances; from guest chef experiences to wine tastings; from Bocce to Bingo(tombola)....it all happens at Casa Belvedere!
Also, integral to our mission is to restore the foundation owned building. Built by the Roebling- Stirn family back in 1908, this Italianate-style, neo-renaissance building is one of the few remaining of its kind in all of NYC. This is a multi-million dollar rehabilitation project that began in 2010 and is ongoing through today.
Casa Belvedere(house with a beautiful view) has established itself as a vibrant and buzzing community center and an anchor in the community.
