Upcoming Events

September Social Event

For the Kick-off Event on Thursday, September 22nd, we will have a night of art at the working studio of the artist collective Antonello Ghezzi and Amandine Samyn, where we will preview their exhibit planned for Bologna Design Week 2016. Located on the first floor of the Palazzina Libertà in the heart of Giardini Margherita, we can enjoy an aperitivo on the terraces overlooking the park. Social greetings will start at 7:30pm. An entry fee of 5 euros, as well as membership dues, will be collected. There will also be an Assemblea Ordinaria for the treasury report, which will be provided by the IWF auditors.

October Monthly Meeting

Save the date for the October Monthly Meeting, scheduled for Thursday, October 20th, during which author and former Johns Hopkins SAIS student, Katherine Wilson, will talk about her new book Only in Naples: Lessons in Food and Famiglia from my Italian Mother-in-Law, which was BBC national radio's Book of the Week in June 2016. The meeting, which is a joint event with JHU SAIS, will be held in the penthouse at Johns Hopkins University (Via Belmeloro, 11) with social greetings starting at 7:15pm in the downstairs bar and the talk commencing promptly at 8pm.
