We're a group of folks who just can't get enough of Italian culture: the food, wine, arts, cinema, language, automobiles, sports and the overall "dolce vita."
Our goal is to get as close to Italy as possible without leaving AZ, immersing ourselves in all things Italian. Knowledge of Italian is not required.
With food, we'll try to explore "alta cucina" by dining at restaurants that represent current Italian cuisine and are a departure from the hackneyed "red sauce" menus. Although there's nothing wrong with a nice mellanzane parmiggiana!
Events include happy hours featuring Italian aperitifs and wines, home movie nights (only Italian films!), museum visits, cooking demonstrations, men's and women's fashion & style and music.
And your ideas and suggestions are welcome and encouraged! We collect a $1 per event per attendee to offset the cost of maintaining the website. This is, of course, in addition to anything you pay for the activity itself.
