The events sponsored by Italian Club at WCU are open to all students who have an interest in the Italian culture and language. Recently we have hosted several dinners and have enjoyed making pasta sauce and eating “Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino” and pizza on the Quad . We have had some fun game nights playing traditional Italian games like Mercante in fiera , Tombola and Bocce in the Quad. In the past semesters we travelled to NYC for visits to Moma and the Metropolitan Museum of Art that featured Italian exhibits. Naturally we also enjoyed our stop at Eataly to try real prosciutto and focaccia…. In the Fall we are looking forward to a visit to the Tenement Museum in NYC .
Our events include weekly lunches to improve our Italian, monthly movies, monthly meals, holidays, trip to Carlino's in town, Little Italy trips, and a possible trip to Italy. We, the officers, need everyone's availability to determine what times are best for our events so please e-mail Daniela Ciceri.
For a trip to Little Italy in Philadelphia we will most likely be taking a train that usually costs around six dollars. We also could plan on going to Little Italy in New York City and we would take a train from Trenton, which usually costs around twenty-three dollars. We also would like to go to Italy, but that would take a large amount of fundraising on all of our behalf. So if you have any great fundraising ideas let us know!
At the meeting we discussed the different committees in the Italian Club, which are fundraising, advertising, social events, and community service. If you have not yet signed up for a committee please do so.
If you have specific ideas, please contact us! Grazie!
