What we're about
1. Purpose of this Meet-Up:
• To offer regular opportunities for all lovers of Italian Language and Culture to immerse themselves in the language, enabling them to listen and converse within a caring and supportive group at fortnightly meet-ups over a cup of coffee and/or a glass of wine. Members' ability levels range from beginners to fluent speakers.
• To offer opportunities for members to participate in a range of cultural activities each year including enjoying Italian food in restaurants, viewing Italian films, attending Italian festivals, visiting Italian art exhibitions and playing Italian games eg. Bocce.
2. Who Should Join:

You may have a desire to share your knowledge of your experiences in Italy, you may want to learn more about the people, the land, the history and the music, you may want to prepare for a trip to Italy, or you may simply enjoy meeting other people with similar stories/experiences to you.
