Upcoming Events

The February Monthly Meeting takes place Thursday, February 21st at the Palazzina at the Centro delle Donne (via del Piombo, 5).  Social greetings will begin at 7pm followed by the general meeting at 7:30pm, Bologna Discoveries: Beyond La Dotta, La Grassa e La Rossa. This meeting will present a panel of members telling their stories about what unexpected discovery they made about Bologna  - or that Bologna helped them make about themselves - which put them on track for change for the better. The members who will share their thoughts with us Thursday hail from four different continents, represent different generations, and all have different lengths-of-stay profiles in Bologna. Themes will include a medley of social, cultural and professional aspects of how life in Bologna has surprised them in a positive way. Following the presentation the conversation continues over a no-host aperitivo at Osteria della Fondazza (via Fondazza, 35).

Save the date for the March Social Event scheduled for Thursday, March 21st. Event details and location to follow.
