Upcoming Events

The April Monthly Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 11th at the Palazzina at the Centro delle Donne (via del Piombo, 5). In light of Earth Day being a key feature in April and given the recent mobilization of the world's youth to promote environmental action, this meeting aims to offer us a glimpse into how we can be a part of a community of responsible consumers; we will hear from Giovanni Notarangelo from Camilla- Emporio di Comunità, Bologna's first cooperative supermarket, committed to sustainable production. Social greetings will begin at 7pm over a light aperitivo followed by the meeting at 7:30pm. Following the event, we hope you will join us for a no-host aperitivo at Osteria della Fondazza (via Fondazza, 35).

From the Board of Directors: Contact Us

  • As we approach April, this also means we are closer May and our association's general assembly where we vote in next year's Board of Directors. This is the time to consider whether you would like to join the Board for the 2019-2020 social year. Board members have a wonderful opportunity to get together and work as a team on a regular basis; it is a really special and fulfilling experience! Don't sell yourself short - no special skills are needed. Please contact president@iwfbologna.com to express your interest and availability, and of course to ask any questions you may have.
