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 Virtual Event: Please join us on Sunday, February 21, 2021, at 1:00PM for a presentation, in English, by Abruzzese author Michele Antonelli, on his book “My Land was Wise:  Over 2,000 Proverbs from the Abruzzese-Sabine Apennines.” Mr. Antonelli’s book collects over 2,000 proverbs from the Apennine region of Abruzzo, groups them by topic and draws from them the dominant moral values of the traditional rural communities. Michele’s presentation, which he will give from his hometown of Montereale, L’Aquila, will focus on superstitions common in Abruzzo, food and drink, colorful expressions, family, choice of spouse and other topics.
