ItalCultura is the official language program at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago and if you feel like getting your cannoli on, or learning a language as part of a New Year's resolution, one of the two two open houses at the institute might be in order. The first is tomorrow, January 10 and the second is the following Thursday, January 17. Its a the opportunity to mix and mingle with authentic Italians, others interested in learning the romance of the language and enjoy a little Italian sustenance. [Racked Inbox]
