Moving to a new country 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 had moved to the Monza and Brianza area.


Today our membership consists of approximately 150 English-speaking women from over 35 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 and events are organised each month such as evening aperitivi, trips to places of interest, family events 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, such as an English language lending library, monthly visits to Art exhibitions in and around Milan, a Creative Expression group, different language conversation groups, yoga classes and walking groups. It is often through these smaller groups that deeper friendships are formed. 


Our monthly on-line magazine "Monza News" keeps members up-to-date on upcoming activities.


We are a non-profit, non-denominational and apolitical organisation, however, we do take an interest in charities and hold various annual events such as a Christmas Bazaar, a Christmas raffle and a pre-loved clothing sale to support local Monza groups.


If you would like to find out more about the Benvenuto International Club of Monza or would like to become a member, send us a message using the "Contact Us" form (at the bottom of the Home page).


The annual fee (September - June) is €70. The  official language of the club is English. 


Guests are welcome and members are invited  to bring along friends and relatives to the Coffee Morning to introduce them as potential members to this Club of dynamic, internationally orientated English speaking women.
