The Italian Club

The Italian Club in Abu Dhabi, under the auspices of the Embassy of Italy, was founded to help the Italian residents of Abu Dhabi meet and socialize, and also to facilitate cultural exchange between the Italian community and Emirati nationals as well as Ex-pat residents of all nationalities.
In close collaboration with the Embassy, CICER organizes various activities for adults and children including: conferences and presentations, Italian gourmet events, Italian and English language courses, trips to art shows and concerts.
Club Members also can get discounts at various businesses in Abu Dhabi.
Membership is open to Italians residing in the Emirates and anyone else who loves all things Italian!
