Since moving to the Triangle several years ago from the Northeast, my husband and I have met only a few Italians and Italian-Americans. We looked into the Italian groups that are around, but most meetings and events are focused in Raleigh, which is a bit of a drive for us. I would like to create a group to host events in our part of the county.

I am trying to start a group for Italians, Italian-Americans, and those just interested in Italian heritage. It will be a local chapter of a national organization. The group will be based in southern Wake and possibly include folks from Harnett County, so meetings and gatherings would be held in Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, etc. So far, the interested people I have talked to are professionals in their 30's and 40's, though the group is open to all ages and backgrounds. My goal is to create a group that holds social and charity events focused on Italian food, language, and culture, and perhaps offer family get-togethers for parents who are trying to teach their children Italian.

If you are interested in being part of this group, please send me a private message and we can discuss details.

That sounds awesome. My boyfriend Sal is all Italian and though my last name is Italian that was by my past husband. I am french myself. Where di you move from? Sal is from NY originally and I am from CT. Sal loves to cook and I was thinking of getting a group together that might want to meet once a month like a gourmet group. Just a thought. Where di you end up moving to? I hope more people respond. I have clients from this forum that areall Italian and own the coffee shop in Mebane. She is on this forum still alot so maybe she'll see your post :-)

Hi...we are looking into a move to Holly Springs. If my husband gets the job he just interviewed for, it will be sometime in November. We're from NJ and come from Italian backrounds (esp my husband). We're 39 & 43. We're both terrible cooks but wouldn't mind learning lol. Sounds like a nice way to get to make new friends. We'll let you know what happens!
