CLOSED FOR EASTER

Wish us luck.

Phone Number for Association

As you know, we are in the midst of changing locations. As of today, in fact, our telephone at Via Roma was turned off and activated at Piazza Sant'Antonio, 6.

Because of the Bora, we did not move our office on Monday as planned and we are still working in the old office... The problem is that we no longer have internet or a phone line in Via Roma, Thank Goodness for Smart Phones!

If you need information about courses or anything else that you would normally get from calling our landline, please call Karoline +39 3498666667 or email us aia.fvg@gmail.com

We may actually get the Front Desk cleaned out and packed up by the time the movers come next week (not having internet can be a good thing!).

Wish Us Luck! We have accumulated a fair amount of (to use the polite term) stuff in the 44 years we have been at Via Roma. It's a good moment to sift, pitch, and simplify.

For those of you on the fence about becoming a volunteer at the Association, the next couple of weeks will be a perfect time to get your feet wet and see what we are all about.

See you soon!

Keeping you in the Loop!

With all the action around via Roma, it's hard to believe we are moving at the end of the month. Only the packing boxes give us away.

Friday we had over 50 people at our TGIF Happy Hour! The food, by the way, was amazing: Fried chicken, Cole Slaw, Caesar Salad, and Mac n' Cheese. For Pics, see FB. Thanks, again, Marino, for cooking it up for us!! It was our last Happy Hour in Via Roma.

Saturday morning Storytime had a record 40 kids!! Thanks Erin and our other fantastic volunteers for making it a success! Remember, next Saturday is our last Storytime for this year. Come for the party! We will pick up again this summer with our Summer Reading Program, of course.

Tonight is Made for Each Other at Cappella Underground. If you have never seen Third Rock From the Sun, come for a good laugh! This crummy weather makes it the perfect day to break some records there as well!

Thanks to everyone who has offered to unpack boxes for us at the new place! We will definitely need you in the coming weeks!

Remember to sign up for the next round of courses starting in April. For information, call +393498666667, or stop in during business hours. We are looking forward to Super Intensive Week on April 8 and regular courses the week after.

For Materna classes, you can choose between Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5-6. The Tuesday course is at the same time as an elementary course, practical if you have one kid for each!

See you this week at the Association!

Missing Via Roma Already?

Click HERE to see some of the things about Via Roma, 15 that we will surely miss!

CORRECTION.

Thank you, dear members and friends, for being such astute readers and translators.

The truth is, the Association moved to Via Roma, 15 in 1969 and NOT in 1984 as was previously believed.

There lies the discrepancy in the communication we sent out. The English version was corrected. The Italian version was not.

Also, the American in me got carried away when I called it Piazza "San Antonio" instead of "Sant'Antonio". I realize now that we are not in Texas.

My apologies.
Karoline

For Members and Friends

Dear Members and Friends,
 
After 44 years at its historic location in Via Roma, The Associazione Italo Americana del FVG/American Corner is delighted to announce that at end of this month it will be moving to its new headquarters: a spacious, beautiful apartment on the second floor of the historic building located in Piazza Sant'Antonio n. 6, in downtown Trieste.
The new location is the fruit of a friendship with the Serbian Orthodox Community of Trieste who own the building the Association will now call home.

This move is a fundamental milestone of a long-term plan which began with a change in Administration in 2010. The new administration, along with a group of dedicated teachers and volunteers contributed to increasing membership, offering more programs, and building a stronger sense of community, all of which have made this move possible.
The new location will allow the Association to better serve members and the public. Along with a much-needed elevator, there are more classrooms to accommodate the growing language school and offer classes year round. The Association also plans to convert the new conference room into a state-of-the-art home theater. There is expanded space for the Paolo Bearz American Corner library and American Corner activities as well as a larger children’s library. The kitchen will be used for the American Cooking School and preparation of meals for Thanksgiving and other social gatherings.
The new location at Piazza Sant'Antonio, 6 will be open to the public starting April 3, 2013 at 4:00p.m. Spring activities and courses will begin on April 8, 2013.



Oggetto: Trasloco AIA da via Roma a Piazza Sant’Antonio 6

Cari Soci, Cari Amici,

Siamo lieti di annunciare che, dopo quasi trent’anni quaranta-quattro anni, la storica sede dell’Associazione Italo Americana/American Corner di via Roma si trasferisce, alla fine di questo mese, nella sua nuova residenza: un ampio e bell’appartamento al secondo piano di uno storico palazzo, ubicato in pieno centro pedonale, in piazza Sant’Antonio, 6.

Si tratta di un passo importante, frutto di uno stretto rapporto di partnership e amicizia con la Comunità Serbo Ortodossa di Trieste, proprietaria di quella che possiamo chiamare “la nostra nuova casa”.

Questo traguardo è il risultato di un lungo percorso inziato con il cambio di Amministrazione avvenuto nel 2010. La nuova Amministrazione, attraverso l’impegno di un gruppo di insegnanti e di volontari che hanno contribuito ad incrementare il numero di soci, offrendo un ampio programma di attività e creando un' amichevole senso di comunità, è riuscita nell’impresa di trovare una collocazione ottimale.

In questo modo l’Associazione potrà soddisfare meglio le necessità dei suoi soci: un ascensore, un numero maggiore di aule per le lezioni di potenziamento della lingua e per i corsi annuali. Oltre a ciò l’Associazione si propone di trasformare la nuova sala conferenze in un ambiente moderno e funzionale adibito a proiezioni ed ascolto.

Inoltre, vi sarà un ampio spazio riservato alla  Paolo Bearz American Corner Library e alle sue varie attività e alla Children's Corner Biblioteca per bambini.

La cucina potrà servire per l’American Cooking school e per preparare le vivande in occasione del Thanksgiving e di tutte le feste ed incontri che verranno organizzati.

La nuova sede di Piazza Sant’Antonio, 6 sarà aperta al pubblico a partire dalle 16.00 del 3 Aprile 2013. Tutte le attività ed i corsi avranno inizio l’8 Aprile 2013.

IT IS OFFICIAL!! AIA IS MOVING!

Pres. Buonomo and Pres. Stojicevic 
After 30 years at the Historic location in Via Roma, The Italian American Association and American Corner are moving to a new location in Piazza San Antonio, 6, Second Floor.

The new location is the fruit of a friendship with the Serbian Orthodox Community of Trieste who own the building the Association will now call home.

This move is a fundamental milestone of a long-term plan which began with a change in Administration in 2010. At the time, the Association was suffering a serious economic crisis. The new administration, along with a group of dedicated teachers and volunteers were able to pay off all debts and turn the situation around in only 18 months.

The new plan called for increasing programs open to the public, inaugurating a children's library, increasing membership, controlling expenses, offering more courses, and moving to a location that better responds to the needs of the Association and our over 500 members.

Exciting features of the new location include an elevator, an expanded children's area, and a kitchen so that the Association and American Corner can continue to grow and expand and play an even more prominent role in the community.

The new location will be open to the public starting APRIL 8, 2013. 
For questions, call: 3498666667.
