Language and Cooking Courses
It has been several years now that the Dante Alighieri Society of Townsville has run regular Italian language and cooking courses. They are well attended and well known throughout Northern Queensland. They attract an even number of Australians of both Italian and non-Italian background, showing how the sweet language of ‘sí’ and all things Italian, maintain through time the charm and charisma that had made Italian the most popular language in Europe in times gone by.
The Society is committed to maintaining these courses as the main activities of the organization. Courses for children and the support of Italian language courses in schools are also other important activities that the society carries out every year. All educational activities are looked after by a Courses Director, who is a member of the Executive and a long standing member of the society.
Throughout the year the Townsville Dante Alighieri Society holds monthly educational and recreational events, which range from movie screenings of recent Italian film releases at cinemas, dinners, lectures on Italy, Italian films, music, art, social games and so on. These cultural meetings are usually announced in the Dante Newsletter.
The Townsville Dante Alighieri Society also supports and participates in local celebrations and festivals, such as the Italian Republic Day usually held at the Italo-Australian Club, the Multicultural Fest and many other artistic events that promote Italian culture and art.
