The Hellenic Foundation for Culture branch was founded in 2007, with the aim of promoting Greek culture, disseminating the Greek language, strengthening the intercultural dialogue and pursuing cultural diplomacy in Italy and Slovenia. Many cultural events are organized which cover the whole spectrum of Greek culture. At the same time, Greek lessons are held for adults of all levels, while in collaboration with the Classical High School “Dante Alighieri”, a pilot program of free Greek language teaching to students and teachers of Trieste High Schools is implemented.
