The Italian Association of Singapore (IAS) was founded in the 50th year of Singapore’s independence. The association is the brainchild of a group of friends, both Italian and Singaporean, in Singapore long active in the social, cultural, business, professional, academic, commercial and entertainment circles.
The IAS was created to meet the growing need for appropriate services of the local Italian community, which has grown enormously in the previous few years and is still in the continuous process of growth and evolution.
As a non-profit association open to all, the IAS is established as an informal reference point for the Italian community and for those who love all that is Italy. The Association aims to collaborate with institutions, both Singaporean and Italian, as well as with other associations and groups, in order to facilitate relationships and strengthen the social fabric of the community with the local territory, and to provide a platform to promotion Italian culture and the way of life.
