Our love for Italy was celebrated on Monday 13 February at the Bettoja Hotel Mediterraneo in Rome.
Friends, old and new, mingled in the stunning setting of the Art Deco bar welcomed by the Bettoja family, the generous hosts of the occasion.
Once again the English-speaking community of Rome – gathered by the American Club of Rome, Professional Women’s Association, American Exchange, the American University of Rome, Temple University, LoveItaly – demonstrated its generosity in celebration of Italy, raising significant funds – €3,500 – for a restoration project at ETRU – National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia involving gold objects from the 2,500 year old Tomb degli “Ori” of Narce.
