2. Purposes of the organization (Object of activity)
This organization is called to represent the “italian culture” abroad, and particularly in Georgia; it is not to be considered an “italian” organization or association, since its members or founders, in turn, have not to be considered necessarily tied to Italy and its administration: instead, they represent only the cultural aspect of it, within an international approach and environment. Its purpose is therefore the cultural promotion, through meetings, exhibitions, courses, workshops, and similar activities, of the “italian culture” considered in its revolutionary character (think for instance at Renaissance and subsequent scientific revolution), as well as the development of innovative and artistic way to spread such intellectual work over the surrounding society (namely in Tbilisi). This is, indeed, the social “mission” of the Institute of italian culture, which we believe especially important: cultural work must have a direct impact over civil life. It must improve the face of the city; of human, and even economic relationships: an intellectual work which is not able to do it, or to set oneself as living examples of a better society, cannot be considered at all “intellectual”. Finally, the organization wish provide some kind of hospitality and support to an international and cultured audience of travelers (specifically, but not limited to, italian “scholars”) maintaining a balance with its cultural prerogatives. It will be therefore carried out all pertinent activities: the hosting, insofar as possible, of visitors; the preparation of an appropriate ambiance for study and working; the offer of food and drink, in turn considered as “cultural nourishment” and therefore falling under the specific commitments of the organization; plus any other service compatible with the purposes, prerogatives and guidelines of such organization.
