News, Events, Happenings, Interesting Articles

The Dante Alighieri Society of Washington is exploring new ways to stay in contact with its members. For more than 30 years we published a newsletter, La Voce della Dante, nine times a year with articles contributed by members. It has been more difficult for our volunteers to produce the monthly newsletter. La Voce is on hiatus for the time being as we explore alternative ways to provide news to our members. We welcome information about Italian related events in the greater Seattle area. Contact us at info@danteseattle.org with your suggestions and articles.
