WELCOME TO THE
ITALIAN AMERICAN FEDERATION

In the latter part of the 1920’s several Italian American clubs in the East Bay were in existence, and although progressing, many of the leaders of each club felt that an association should be formed so that more recognition of our Italian American background could be brought forth to those unaware of our existence.

In the year of 1930, ground work for this wonderful idea was established, the IAF was a reality, and Frank Gatto was installed as its first president and was to serve in that capacity until 1940.

The Colombo Club Is Offering Italian Lessons To Children From Five To Twelve Years Old
Bambini Ciao, Italian Language and Culture for Children
The Italian language and culture class for children at the Colombo Club will begin its 7th year in the Fall!  With the addition of Stefania Olivieri, a new lead parent, and our two native Italian teachers, we reorganized the class last year.  The class now utilizes a cross curriculum approach in which each class has a theme and includes instruction in different specialties:  Grammar, Reading, Writing, Art, and even some Cooking!  This of course is for the older children, 5 to 12 year olds.  We also offered a short immersion class for Pre-K kids which was mostly singing and music. 

Given the strong popularity and success of our new class, we intend to reintroduce it this Fall.  In addition, we will offer classes for children with NO experience in Italian as I have had many requests for this.  In addition, we will offer a more advanced class for teenagers.

The classes will be held every other Sunday with varying times between 10:00am to 12:30pm. 
Do you have children, nephews/nieces, grandchildren, or friends who might be interested?  My Gemelli (Twins) have really benefitted from these classes and I know yours would too.  Please contact Carlo Tamburrino at cell. phone
(510) 520-6732 or email at viacarlo@aol.com for information and enrollment. 

As time has passed in America, Italian is heard less and less.  Of course, there are many reasons for it but I am sure you all agree that it is the most basic link to our cultural heritage.
Non dimentichiamo le nostre radici e la nostra bellissima madre lingua!
(Let’s not forget our roots and our beautiful mother language!)
