Celebrating and learning together
Throughout the year, the Casa d'Italia organization brings people together for various social and cultural events. Whether lavish fundraisers held offsite or intimate gatherings hosted in one of our many elegant spaces, every Casa event is a memorable success. Join us for the next affair, or participate by attending one of the many continuing education courses we offer.
