Italian Club

Advisor: Signora Hoerle


The Italian Club’s mission is to promote Italian culture and friendship and to support hunger relief organizations. Its members participate to school events such as Foreign Language Week and Holiday Traditions. Over the course of the years, the Italian Club has also written and performed several plays in the tradition of Italy’s Commedia dell’Arte. In particular, both Giulietta e Romeo and I due Fanulloni were performed at Burlington High School. Giulietta e Romeo was also performed at Harvard University. Luigino va a scuola was performed at Marshall Simonds Middle School to celebrate Carnevale and, later, our members turned Luigino’s story into a book for middle school students studying Italian. Our current project Italia SI“, Italia NO will be performed for the Burlington Sons of Italy Lodge and for the Italian Exchange students coming to Burlington High School. Our various fund raisers have benefited the Burlington Food Pantry and various charities around the world. At present, Caffe` Italia sells coffee every Friday morning to raise money for a mission in Kenya and Frontline.
