Our mission is to promote an appreciation of Italian language and culture through social engagement. We help people with a strong interest in Italy connect with one another, both online and in person. Membership is FREE and we're open to all levels of Italian language from zero to native fluency.

We're the original Italian language meetup group in our area, the largest, and still the fastest growing. Tutti possono aderire al nostro gruppo. Se ci aiuti a crescere... cresceremo insieme!

Parleremo di tutto e di niente, l'importante è stare in compagnia e farsi anche qualche risata.
  • Cineforum italiano: Italian films are a wonderful way to share an Italian cultural experience.
  • Italian Language Lessons: We offer Italian language workshops and lessons every week.

  • And it doesn't stop there! We're always looking for new opportunities to socialize while enjoying Italian language and culture. We participate in guided museum tours, lectures, exhibits, street festivals, concerts, sporting events and cultural events at the Italian embassy and other locations. All the events are selected with the Italian and italophile in mind. You'll see the exact time and location for events once you join our group.
