We have more than 250 sports clubs and societies bringing LSE students together – from faith, cultural and academic societies, to fundraising groups and student media - there’s bound to be something for everyone.


Both for Italians and non-Italians, the Italian Society aims to promote Italian culture on campus and raising awareness of political, cultural and economic issues concerning Italy and Europe.

Italian Society


We are an inclusive group of Italians and non-Italians, promoting Italian culture on campus and raising awareness of issues concerning Italy and Europe. The society offers guest speakers and events, including our major signature event, the Italian Symposium, a partnership with United Italian Societies with notorious guests from the current Italian political, economic and social panorama. Our lectures touch on numerous aspects and issues facing Italy today. We have welcomed Giorgio Napolitano and five Prime Ministers: Giuliano Amato, Massimo D’Alema, Romano Prodi, Enrico Letta and Paolo Gentiloni. We organise numerous social events including Italian ‘aperitivi', Pizza Parties, and joint parties with the Italian Societies of other Universities.
