The Italian Society strives to foster innovative thinking through lectures, conferences and discussions. It provides opportunities for informal meetings and exchanges among all its members. It seeks to create stronger links between current members and alumni to facilitate involvement with and support to the Italian community at Harvard.

Since 2009, the group has expanded into the Italian Society and has grown in size and importance, extending its membership to virtually all Harvard schools and departments (counting more than 100 student, researchers and faculty members).
While still young in its current form, the Italian Society revives a tradition that goes back to the early twentieth century: the Harvard Alumni Bulletin of March 31. 1921, refers to the Harvard Italian Society and its activities to raise funds for the Italian Scholarship Fund aimed at supporting Italian students at Harvard.
