Chairman of The British-Italian Society


Message from the Chairman of The British-Italian Society:

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to a special evening to mark the 70th anniversary of the first steps taken in 1941 to set up what has now become the BRITISH-ITALIAN SOCIETY to be held on Thursday 10th November 2011.

Although we are dependent mostly on membership payments to finance our activities, we do run a small annual deficit, and therefore need to raise funds so that we can do everything possible to meet the Society’s educational, cultural and charitable aims.  So please do come and support us at our special fund-raising evening and bring a guest!

A wonderful venue has been offered to us by Tomasso Brothers Fine Art, the sculpture and furniture dealers, whose new London Gallery recently opened in Pimlico Road and who also won a special award at this year’s Masterpiece exhibition. The gallery (see is a large and beautiful space, full of superb sculptures in bronze and marble. In addition to being able to enjoy the reception and supper there, we will also have the use of part of the adjoining eclectic Jamb Gallery for a jazz concert.

Programme for the evening:

19.00: Welcome aperitif with canapés (Tomasso Gallery)

20.00: Jazz concert by brilliant London-based Italian saxophonist Tommaso Starace and

           his Quartet (see

21.00 Buffet supper with Italian wine and food (Tomasso Gallery)

We will also have a raffle with attractive prizes; the draw will be held when we blow out the candles on the Society’s birthday cake at about 21.30.

All in all it promises to be a night to remember, and we sincerely hope you will join us!
