The Society was formed by a group of people with a love of 'things Italian' in 1983 as an Italian language class. Social evenings were organised and after several years the classes died out but the social side flourished. We now meet monthly for talks, usually illustrated and always in English, on a variety of Italian topics. However, our Italian speaking members are always happy to help anyone wishing to speak the language.
We are a friendly group so if you are interested in art, cuisine, music, architecture, history or have enjoyed and Italian holiday come along to one of our meetings. No knowledge of Italy or the language is necessary and our meetings always end with a glass of wine.
Meetings are on the first Monday evening of the month in the Ann Rose Hall, Greyfriars Community Centre, Ringwood
A long title for a unique presentation, not to be missed. Cassoni are beautifully decorated pieces of furniture that illustrate a particular time and place in Renaissance Italy.
The story of two cooks, Italian, of course!
Manuela, who teaches Italian to some of our members, is from Milan so is well qualified to tell us about her home town.
Chris and Tony will introduce us to this part of Sicily, famous for a special type of chocolate!
Mary will take us to visit three lesser-known Italian lakes - Bolsena, Bracciano and Massacuiccholi - in order to look at the scenery, their history, and their food; as well as other claims to fame.
Richard is bringing us some Italian composers, not as well known as Verdi, Puccini Rossini
Sue, a local artist, has visited Montepulciano so often that is almost her second home. Hear all about it from someone who loves it.
* One week later than normal due to Bank Holidays
Meetings are in the Ann Rose Hall at 7.30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month.
