Moving to a new country, whether for work or personal reasons, can often feel very stressful. Whether it’s because of cultural differences, having to learn a new language or simply just feeling far from friends and family, having someone close by, who understands the difficulties, can be an enormous help. 

 

                                                                                    “Welcoming New Friends”

 

The Benvenuto International Club of Monza was founded in 1990  to provide such a support network to international women who have moved to the Monza and Brianza area.

 

Today our membership consists of approximately 150 English-speaking women from over 20 countries. We strive to foster international fellowship and friendship through our various activities.

 

                                                                                  “Making lifelong friendships”

 

Our main social event is a monthly Coffee Morning held from September through June at the Sporting Club in Monza.

 

In addition, special activities are organised each month such as: walks, trips to places of interest, guided tours of exhibitions and museums, cookery lessons, wine-tasting tours, family outings, concerts and lectures as well as a variety of lunches and dinners.

 

The Club also has number of special interest groups that cover a wide range of interests. 

It is as these smaller Club activities that friendships are formed. 

 

Our monthly on-line newsletter "Monza News" keeps members up-to-date on activities, providing a forum of communication and offers advice on living in Italy. 

 

We are a non-profit, non-denominational and apolitical organisation. However, we do take an interest in charities and our main fundraising events are a  Bazaar and a Raffle.
