A touch of ITALY
As a group of Italian-American residents and business owners, it is our hope and goal to reinvigorate the love for il bel paese (the beautiful country) of Italy.
There's no need to book a plane ticket to experience everything there is to love about Italy; we bring Italy to Chicago through our organization and partners.
