Our purpose is to perpetuate Italian Culture and the Italian Language with a variety of activities. We will share our passion for all things Italian with meetings that include food and wine and intelligent conversation, in both Italian and English.

Members of this group will be enthusiastic and passionate. Meetings will be fun and educational. If you speak Italian the meetings will afford you an opportunity to communicate with other Italian speakers. If you do not speak Italian, our meetings will afford you the opportunity to learn with lessons that will be included at each meeting.

SIAMO means "we are". We are responsible, through education and presentation, for erasing the stereotype and building the prototype.
