What we're about

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 welcome as members those with and without Italian heritage alike. All races, ethnicities, genders, gender identities, sexualities, (dis)abilities are encouraged to join.
