"Friends of Italian" was set up in 1994 by a group of mature graduates
of the Italian degree course at the University of Kent, in order to pursue their enthusiasm for all aspects of Italian culture and language.


The yearly Programme consists of a series of talks given by a variety of speakers,
academics, writers etc., on a wide range of Italian related subjects, including Art, History, Literature, Politics and current affairs. The talks are given in English and are held every fourth Thursday of the month during term-time at 7.30pm in Keynes College Senior Common Room, by courtesy of the University of Kent.


FORO is the monthly Italian conversation group when English members, interested in improving and keeping up their spoken Italian, can meet with native Italian members to hear and practise the language and socialise.



At the New Year we celebrate “Festa della Befana” in early January by having a lunch at a local Italian restaurant in Canterbury where all members and their partners are welcome.


In June we host a “Summer Garden Party” at the home of two of our members who generously makes their garden and home available to end off our season.
