Museo ItaloAmericano, also known as the Italian American Museum, is a museum in San Francisco, California, the only California museum to focus solely on Italian and Italian-American art and culture. The Italian American Museum in New York City is an independent entity.[2] San Francisco's nonprofit Museo ItaloAmericano was founded in 1978 and is located within the Fort Mason Center.[3] Although the museum always holds temporary exhibits, it also maintains a permanent collection, including works by Beniamino Bufano, Francesco Clemente, Sandro Chia, Mimmo Paladino, among others.[3] The museum also offers a number of Italian language classes, from beginner to advanced to casual conversation classes.[3]
