Practice your Italian, meet others interested in the Bel Paese, and have some fun.

We meet at 7:00 PM on the second Monday of each month at various locations in Columbus. In addition, we have occasional special event meetups.

In general, members have an intermediate level of Italian proficiency. But if you are a beginner, don’t let that stop you. Through our Meetup you can sign up for language study and interactive learning experiences from Children's Classes to Travelers' Tips to Beginner through Advanced Italian.  All levels and ages are welcome.

To learn more about the group, see the FAQ, look for issues of Italian Meetup News posted on the Message Board, check the Calendar for past meeting agendas, and follow us on Twitter at
