DAS History notes:

The Società Dante Alighieri‘s inaugural meeting of the Michigan Chapter was held on December 21, 1924, at the Detroit Public Library Main Branch. The guiding purpose was “to promote Italian cultural programs.”

The Società Dante Alighieri Headquarters was established in Rome, Italy, by Royal Decree in 1893 by King Umberto I di Savoia. It is named in honor of II Sommo Poeta Fiorentino, Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), who created the pillars of Italian literature and language and profoundly affected Western civilization with the universality of his wisdom.

Our membership reflects all nationalities, vocations, and ages of persons interested in the Italian language and culture. The Dante Alighieri Society – Michigan Chapter is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization. All member dues are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
