TowerItalian language and culture might be the culture and language of your family or a personal interest, but they are for sure the culture and language of Dante, Machiavelli, Elena Ferrante, Federico Fellini, Vivaldi, Sibilla Aleramo, Rita Levi Montalcini and Primo Levi. You can study Italian to discover where you are coming from, to talk to your grandma, to become a great cook, to find a job in International Law or simply because you realize that Western culture would not be the same without the Italian contribution. Studying Italian will make you more aware of your own language and culture and, more often than not, it will be a lot of fun.
