Upcoming Events

The April Monthly Meeting takes place this Thursday, April 11th at the Palazzina at the Centro delle Donne (via del Piombo, 5). At this meeting we will hear from Giovanni Notarangelo from Camilla- Emporio di Comunità, Bologna's first cooperative supermarket, committed to sustainable production. Giovanni will explain how the coop works and how we can be part of a community of responsible consumers. Do that April thing, and think green! 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).

Save the date for the May Monthly Meeting and Assemblea Ordinaria scheduled for Thursday, May 16th. Event location and details to follow shortly.

From the Board of Directors: Contact Us

  • By now you should have received an email from our membership team regarding changes to the privacy policy for which IWF needs your consent in order to keep you on our mailing lists. Please note that we do need you to respond to this email by April 15.  If you have not received it, please contact membership@iwfbologna.com. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

  • As we approach May, this means we are close to the end of our social year and our association's general assembly where we vote in next year's Board of Directors. We ask you 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.
