Welcome to the Tuscan Association of Oregon!
Thanks to everyone who was on the line for our Zoom chat on July 26!
Speaking of virtual gatherings, our friends at Festa Italiana are holding one on Saturday, Sep. 19 at 10:00am. It will feature an olive oil maker (and former Portlander), Mario Dodici, live from Italy. There will be an auction, raffle and the opportunity to buy someof Mario’s oils. The event is open to anyone. For more information, please go to https://www.festa-italiana.org/.
The Tuscan Association is on hiatus from in-person gatherings because of the health emergency. We are contemplating something for October … probably another virtual meeting via Zoom. Stay tuned!
Thanks to Tony Belluschi who joined us on Feb. 16 to talk about his father, famed Italian-American architect Pietro Belluschi. Tony also talked about his own architectural career. We also walked through St. Philip Neri Church, a Pietro Belluschi design which was consecrated in 1950.
See the Round-up page for details of previous meetings.
