2020 Year in Review

Some of the photos used were taken prior to COVID-19.


The year 2020 was a year unlike any other, upending life as we knew it. Despite the challenging circumstances, the Italian Cultural Foundation continued to be mission driven. Our goal was to maintain a sense of togetherness, and to help ease the community’s feeling of isolation. As we look toward 2021 with a sense of healing and rebirth, we are resolved to emerge from this unprecedented challenge with strength and a renewed commitment to our community.

We wish you and your family strength, health and happiness for the New Year.
