Over sixty years ago a visionary group of Italian men and women of Naples, FL came together and established an organization to provide social gatherings and promote camaraderie among persons of Italian Ancestry. Thus, the Naples Italian American Club was born. The current building became a part of Naples’ landscape in 1969.
Throughout the years, because of its active membership and strong leadership, the organization gradually assumed a greater role in promoting the rich culture and heritage of the Italian people, including Americans of Italian descent.
Naples Italian American Foundation, a 501c(3), was formed in 2009 to appeal to a broader range of people in the community.
This has provided the opportunity to expand our mission from merely social to include educational, cultural and charitable activities.
However, at 7035 Airport Road North, Naples, FL 34109, we still maintain our “home away from home atmosphere” and welcome everyone interested in Italian culture to join us and/or consider donating to our Foundation, and to the local charities that we support.
The Italian American heritage is a heritage to preserve. We are always seeking ways to share the treasures of our Italian culture and are open to new ideas and suggestions from members to further achieve that goal.
