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. All levels and ages are welcome.

The Meetup doesn't offer classes, but check out ITALIA IN OHIO ( You'll find courses that accommodate all kinds of students. From those who are brand-new beginners, to those who learned a little Italian at home, and even those at a higher conversational level.

To learn more about the ITALIAN MEETUP, see the FAQ, check the Calendar for past meeting agendas, and follow us on Twitter at
