For this reason, the Institute conducts a number of different activities. It organises concerts, screenings, lectures, exhibitions and other cultural events, that with very few exceptions are free and open to the public. It facilitates initiatives that promote the Italian Language in Sweden, such as the coordination of Italian courses with Folkuniversitetet. The Institute collaborates with a number of institutes, universities, museums, academies, conservatories, galleries and publishers, as well as with press, radio and TV both in Sweden and in Italy. It provides documentation and information about Italian cultural life and the institutions working in this field.
