The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities each year: (1) up to 6 general membership meetings per year, including a wine tasting; and (2) the annual Ferragosto picnic. These events are sponsored by AMHS or held in conjunction with other Italian American organizations. AMHS also promotes the events and activities of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area.
NEXT AMHS Event: Due to the Covid pandemic situation with the widespread prevalence of the omicron variant, AMHS made the decision to postpone the January 30, 2022 in-person luncheon program with Eric Denker of the National Gallery of Art. We will, instead, offer a free Zoom virtual program, at 1:00PM in January 30 – a discussion of the documentary film, “My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes, which tells the story of brave Italians who defied the Nazis and Fascists to save the lives of thousands of Jewish people, partisans, and refugees during the Holocaust. The discussion will be led by filmmaker Jim Toscano. See the calendar for additional details.
Be sure to check out the calendar for the February 27, 2022 free Zoom virtual presentation, “Italian Louisiana: History, Heritage, Tradition.”
