We are the original Lunedi' Italiano group originally started by Jessica Dello Russo, myself, and some other friends around 2001-02.
PURPOSE: our goal is to have a non-profit, non-dues paying group that meets every two weeks, on every other Monday in Central Square (Andala Cafe) at 8:15PM, amplifying the more novice spin-off group that meets at 7PM.
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.
BELOW: "FAGIOLI CITTA' " is Italian for 'beans city' - thus Boston's nickname, 'bean town'.
