Upcoming Events

September Kick-off Social Event

It's time to kick off the 2014-2015 Social Year! Join the IWF for a guided visit of the Pinacoteca National Gallery (Via delle Belle Arti, 56) on Thursday, September 25th at 6:45pm.  Depending on the number of attendees, the group will be divided and visit the gallery in three staggered time slots. Join your fellow members afterwards for a chance to socialize and enjoy a no-host aperitivo nearby (location to be announced). Space is limited to 75 participants on a first come first served basis, and members may bring female guests to introduce to the IWF. SIGN UP now on the forum.
