Amici

Who are the Amici?
Amici is Italian for ‘Friend’.  The Friends of Festa have helped us get to where we are today!  The Amici are the Mancinis_silentauction02backbone of the team, a very important and much appreciated element for continuation of Festa Italiana Minnesota (F.I.M).

Festa Italiana is in our 2016 season and we’re excited to develop and plan for this year’s Grand FESTA ITALIANA MINNESOTA!

Our last two events took place on October 10th  &  November 15th
October saw Festa at a theater to see the play “Philly The Musical” – Based on true events, PHILLY is a musical set in an Italian neighborhood during the 1980’s, filled with song, dance and laughs!  The evening included a reception with music, Italian treats, a silent auction, and a chance to talk with the producer, director and the cast~!  It was a great time.

The November “Salute to the Military,” had an Italian bDeGidios_2014uffet (food – it’s what we do!), live entertainment, slide presentations on MN Italians in the armed services, silent auctions, live auctions (including a Maserati for a weekend!!!), and a raffle for a “barrel of booze.”

 

F.I.M is currently planning it’s Winter Fundraiser (Feb 21st) at the “Moose On Monroe“, plus a spring fundraiser sometime in May (updates to follow).  We are planning this year’s “Festa Italiana Minnesota” to be held in St. Paul around the end of July in 2016.
