Institute of Culture Brazil Italy Europe
The ultimate goal of the I.C.B.I.E. is to empower the disadvantaged youth of Salvador, giving them education and artistic skills that will permit them to obtain meaningful employment, to escape from the vicious circle of poverty, ignorance and violence.

To provide educational and cultural resources for the local community of Salvador, the Institute of Culture Brazil Italy Europe focuses upon the following initiatives:

An integrated program aiming to enrich and improve the understanding, integration and cultural exchange between Italy and Brazil, two nations with deep historic ties.
Formal courses in computer technology, foreign languages (mainly Italian, English and Portuguese for foreigners), visual arts, theater, music and hapkido.
Seminars in photography, filmmaking, dance, fashion design, handicrafts, cuisine, literature and poetry.
The Leonardo da Vinci Library, with more than 12,000 books, videos, and music CDs, open to the public.
Art and photography exhibits, concerts and lectures, given by visiting artists, scholars and musicians.
A base for genuine cultural exchange, where visiting social workers, NGOs and socially responsible tourists can meet with locals, fostering a mutual respect and understanding.
Outreach in support of worthy local associations, orphanages, and schools.
