The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities each year including:

  • Up to 6 general membership meetings per year, including a wine tasting;

  • The annual Ferragosto picnic and Carnevale

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.

The next AMHS-sponsored event will be a virtual talk with a member of the International Photography Hall of Fame, Tony Vaccaro on Friday, October 30, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.  Tony’s pictures range from World War II to fashion.  Tony is a naïve of Bonefro, Molise who came to America during the WW II era.  He has led an amazing life, and has many wonderful stories to tell, of his adventures growing up in Molise and his time spent with famous people, including Picasso.

In November, AMHS will host a virtual wine-tasting event on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.  Our annual wine tasting event, which cannot be held in person, will be a virtually guided wine lecture and tasting hosted by Veni Vini Amici, including an interview with Molise producer Antonio Valerio, owner of Campi Valerio in Monteroduni, live-streamed from Italy! So please join us on November 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EST.  Details on how to join this event, via Zoom, coming soon – keep an eye on your email, as well as the Society’s Facebook page and updates to this calendar.  This event is free to members & non-members however, participants will be responsible for purchasing the wines that will be tasted (see details for this event about where to buy the wines).
