Forty years ago Il Circolo was founded by a small group of people of Italian heritage, with an interest in all things Italian. Its main goal is to preserve and promote the Italian Culture through events held about art, music, language and of course, food. Scholarships are also given to qualified students to study in Italy. The Italian program at FAU was started by Il Circolo and continues to support it as well as schools and institutions including Palm Beach Opera that have Italian Culture in their programs. Luncheons, dinners and social activities, focused around regions of Italy, are also offered. Each year, a gala is held when a distinguished person of Italian heritage is honored for his/her contributions and generosity to the community.
