This is a group for everyone who has interest in Italian language and culture to connect with one another, both online and in person.

Activities such as going to the movies, dinner, taking coffee together, couchsurfing, organizing Wine/travel  tours in Canada or abroad, shopping dates, going clubbing,cooking together...can also be posted.

Pretty much anything you can think of that preferably gets you out of the house and is related to Italian Language and Culture is acceptable.

To get inspired visit where you will be able to see what other Italian meetups around the world do. Pick up idea and do the same here! :-)
