What we’re about
Our purpose is to perpetuate Italian Culture and the Italian Language with a variety of activities. We will share our passion for all things Italian with meetings that include food and wine and intelligent conversation, in both Italian and English.
Members of this group will be enthusiastic and passionate. Meetings will be fun and educational. If you speak Italian the meetings will afford you an opportunity to communicate with other Italian speakers. If you do not speak Italian, our meetings will afford you the opportunity to learn with lessons that will be included at each meeting.

I just thought I would do a picture tour of the island of Sicily to include pictures of the various times I have been there, including my most recent trip this past Autumn.
If you ever thought about visiting Sicily or just want to know more about it, then jump on this zoom call.
We'll look at some various cities, food, architecture and go over a little vocabulary when appropriate.

- Italian Club - Wine Down Wednesday Happy Hour - Ybor CityItalian Club of Tampa, Tampa, FL
The Italian Club of Ybor City is hosting a "Wine Down" Wednesday night happy hour from 5 to 8 PM on December 13th.
It will be in the Cantina downstairs. This is a beautiful building with a lot of history and the Cantina is a nice place to meet with a nice bar.
The event is FREE and open to members and the general public.
There is a cash-bar with 2-for-1 Italian wine, music, and they are offering a buffet from Catering by the Family for $15.
They usually do a tour of the building and talk about the rich history of the club and Ybor City.
The best place to park is behind (north of) Carmine's restaurant (City Lot 5) and there is also a city garage on 15th street, and there are other options as well.
To find out more about this happy hour, here is the link to the Italian Club's page:
Hope to see you there!
- Italian Mass - St. Petersburg Fl. at St. Jude's CathedralSt Jude Cathedral, St. Petersburg, FL
I just found out that there will be an Italian mass on Sunday, December 17th at St. Jude's Cathedral. It will be in the chapel.
Father Tony Fortunato will be doing the service and he is very entertaining to say the least.
The mass will be 95% in Italian. So if you have taken any of my classes, or just want to brush up on your Italian, this will be a good way to do it! They have a pamphlet that they hand out so you can follow along.
And you'll be going to church at the same time.
There are not many places in the country where you can attend an Italian mass service, so we are lucky that we have this opportunity.
Hope you can make it!
