Originally established for children and adults of Italian descent, the Pirandello Italian Language Center (PILC) program has helped thousands of second, third, and fourth-generation Italian-Americans connect with their heritage. Since our inception in 1973, we have presented Boston's Italian community with a realistic picture of contemporary Italy and its rich historical and cultural traditions.

PILC continues to offer Saturday morning immersive language classes (10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) to students ages 3-16 and their parents and friends. Now part of Saint Leonard's Parish, the school boasts a diverse and enthusiastic membership taught by talented, native-speaking


Our program is a beacon of Italian culture and partners with local Italian businesses and like-minded organizations to support our collective mission of maintaining and celebrating Italian heritage and customs in the North End.

Thanks to the steadfast support of our proud parents, students, and friends, this concert is free to the public. We look forward to celebrating with you!
