Strategic Plan

A questionnaire to members along with interviews with key external individuals was recently conducted to gather input for the Punto Strategic Plan.  This information will be used to prepare a Strategic Plan that will be available to help the 2023 Board of Directors.

Interested in Volunteering?

We have a range of ways to volunteer. One area we'd love more volunteers is to help coordinate in-person or virtual events, classes and initiatives.

We are especially looking for a volunteer coordinator and class moderators for our very popular Italian Conversation classes.

Biblioteca Italiana water damages update December 12th

The Biblioteca Italiana Seattle (BIS), housed at Casa Italiana, suffered significant water damage on 29 June 2022.  We estimate approximately 400 books were damaged beyond repair and had to be discarded. The remaining books have been dried and packed into boxes. The library room has been repaired and we expect to begin moving the books back in January.

Il Punto is excited to announce our new Board of Directors for 2023:

Alessandra Arosio: president
