The Society was founded in 1945. Through educational and social evenings it aims to promote a greater understanding of Italian language and culture. This includes the opportunity to learn and improve your Italian through regular classes at all levels. Social evenings (Feste) are arranged to give everyone the chance to share their interest of all things Italian. Anglo-Italian friendship is encouraged and we welcome all those who have connections with Italy through friends or families.
The Society meets every Tuesday from September till May at the historic building now occupied by The AECC University College of Chiropractic in Boscombe. There are four language classes, from beginners to conversation level. Classes begin at 19.30 promptly and last till 20.45. They are followed by refreshments and a chance to socialize and practice your Italian!
