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).
