I have served on the board of the Festa for all 18 years of its existence. I was born in Naples, Italy and have lived in the U.S. for 45 years. I want to share and promote the Italian heritage. I work hard to that end by involved all through the year in various capacities. I currently handle the entertainment and help with obtaining Italian restaurants for the event. I am proud to be asscociated with this marvelous event.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being a volunteer and seeing many other volunteers enthusiastically involved in the event. It is held in the downtown public square which has the feeling of a small Italian town square.

Festa Italiana Association is a hard-working, enthusiastic group that puts on an extremely popular event taking place in Portland's "piazza", Pioneer Square, every August. Tens of thousands of people eat, drink, dance and enjoy camaraderie under sunny skies and starry nights. I really enjoy some of the "auxiliary" events like film night and the bocce tournament that lead up to the main event. Sometimes I wish Festa were more Italian and less Italian-American, especially when it comes to the entertainment and food.

Saturday night, when most of the work is done and the party can begin for those who have put in so much time and effort.

My involvement with Festa Italiana is an immensely rewarding experience. As a non-Italian who loves Italian culture, participation in this organization is teaching me a lot about Italy plus has helped me to meet many of her sons and daughters who live in Portland and beyond, as well as develop my own leadership skills. When I first started with Festa back in 2005, I was welcome with open arms. I am very proud to serve on the board of an organization whose mission involves putting on a cultural celebration every year, to make the culture more accessible to the greater community, through personal engagement and education.
