Chatty in Illinois

Italian language meetups are fairly common nowadays and oftentimes have a specific theme, such as the extreme language exchange held in Rome or the Cineforum Italiano in Washington, DC. One in particular, though, deserves mention if only for its name. I Chiacchieroni is an Italian-language conversation group in Illinois that meets for dinner every month for a casual evening of conversation in Italian. With a name like that, the group is sure to be talkative!

Club Tutti also has similar gatherings. Club Tutti meets in South Florida on a weekly basis to “parlare l’italiano” while we have an aperitivo.
We also have events throughout the year in Firenze, Roma, Milano and Las Vegas.
The gatherings bring people together who love Italy!

I have also had a group in the Chicago area for “Italian Nights”. We have had some beautiful evenings speaking only Italian and virtually transferring ourselves thru the power of language back to Italy while sitting in Chicago. I’ll be in touch with this group also. Maybe we could combine our efforts for an evening.

- and a little farther away in South Wales, we meet monthly for La Chiacchierata, so named by our first Italian teacher, who still joins us from time to time.
