We have decided to go back to the conversation format: everybody will get a chance to talk for a few minutes about whatever interests them or what they’ve been doing recently and others can ask questions. If at least 10 aren't signed up by Sunday midnight, we'll postpone until the Lunedi`2 weeks later, each time.
Questo e' un gruppo abbastanza avanzato della lingua Italiana. E' il gruppo Lunedi' Italiano stabilto circa l'anno 2000 di Jesscia Dello Russo, Kevin Galie', e altri amici. Abbiamo cominciato, fino a la chiusura, al Caffe' Paradiso, Harvard Square, proprieta' del famoso, ben ricordato e carissimo Oscar. Poi, ci siamo trasferiti a Cafe Andala, Central Square e adesso a Harvard Square o con Zoom. Incontriamo ogni DUE settimane, i Lunedi' .
We are the original Lunedi' Italiano group originally started by Jessica Dello Russo, myself, and some other friends around 2001-02. We are now approximately 750 members strong.
PURPOSE: our goal is to have a non-profit, non-dues paying group that meets every two weeks, on every other Monday somewhere around Harvard Square or on Zoom.
We formerly met at Andala in Central Square but they started charging people who came and didn't buy anything - We were meeting at Bar Noir every 2 weeks, but currently we do a 40 minutes zoom meeting or will meet at a cafe, depending on circumstanced, every 2nd Monday.
- We may find a different locations/Cafe`s when Covid restrictions are over, and are open to your suggestions.
WHO SHOULD JOIN: People with some conversational ability in Italian who want to improve it should join. The Cambridge meetup tends to be somewhat conversationally more advanced, but we will help you especially if you ask, we don't want to step on any toes. So if you want to get beyond menu's and what you like and don't like, and talk about current events, emotions, politics, history, art, music,sports all in Italian, - this is what will happen.
WHY? You should join because you already have at least a minimally functional ability to conjugate Italian sentences, and are looking to exercise and expand that ability, and hear native or near-native speakers. Everyone and all levels are welcome!!
BELOW: "FAGIOLI CITTA' " is Italian for 'beans city' - thus Boston's nickname, 'bean town'.
