Cultural Group – Third Monday of the Month – Vista room – Hillside
Monday, Mar. 20, 2023 - 1:00 PM
The Cultural Group meets on the first and third Monday of the month in the Vista Room at 1 PM
On March 20, we will have a Potluck lunch to celebrate San Giuseppe.
Saint Joseph is celebrated in southern Italy with a Tavolata (St. Joseph’s Table – altar).
However, these days the town with the most celebrations is…. New Orleans LA
Here is a story about St. Joseph Tavolata written by Loretta:
While we are at it, we will also celebrate San Patrizio (he was Roman).
The Italian Cultural Group is envisioned as a place where participants
can share their love of Italy and the Italian culture, Si parla
italiano, and English is spoken too!
This bilingual group encourages lively, informal conversations in
either language about anything Italian: food, music, travel, movies,
etc. Discussions will reflect the interests of attendees. Activities
could include games like Scrabble in Italian or Italian card games
like Scopa and Briscola.
Traditional Italian holidays will be celebrated. Bilingual newspapers
and magazines will be on hand to stimulate conversation. There could
even be a sing-along of favorite Italian songs. Since the Vista room
has a kitchen there is a possibility of a few cooking demonstrations.
This group is free and open to all residents and guests. It is not
necessary to be a member of the Italian-American Club to participate
in the Italian Cultural Group. The only requirement is an interest in
all things Italian. For more information about this group and all the
events of the Italian-American Club of Rossmoor, check out the website
