The foundation of the Institute of Italian Culture Monaco of Bavaria dates back to 1955; the ground was that of the "House of the Italians", which was built towards the end of the thirties mainly thanks to the contributions of Italian importers of fruit and vegetables who lived around the central markets. In fact, the Italian Institute of Culture is located in the central markets and the Theresienwiese. Probably destroyed during the war, the building was rebuilt with the Italian Government funds between the years 1954/1955.
