Welcome to the website of the Dante Alighieri Society and School of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which was established in 1961 by Sab Roncucci and is a registered society in Alberta.  The Edmonton Committee is one of the approximately 500 committees existing in 62 countries of the Dante Alighieri Society.  This Society was established in Italy in 1889 and the poet Giosuè Carducci was the foremost inspirer.

“What we are promoting is a lofty, fundamental, civil and peaceful work in which each Italian, regardless of his or her religious creed or political opinions, must feel the necessity and the duty to take part.”

From the Manifesto of Foundation
Rome, 1889

We are proud to promote the appreciation of the Italian culture abroad and also to establish and direct courses on Italian language and culture. For further information, please contact:
