Abruzzese Italian Americans
Welcome to the official website for the Federazione Abruzzese del Michigan. This organization was founded in 1999. La Federazione Abruzzese del Michigan is a community of Italian- Americans who share a common heritage from the region of Abruzzo, in central, eastern Italy. We are based in southeastern Michigan and are composed of hundreds of members of all ages.
We hold our monthly meetings on the first Thursday of each month at the Italian American Cultural Center in Clinton Township. First and foremost, our goal is to cultivate Abruzzese culture. We do this by hosting events where we celebrate common traditions. An extension of this goal is to pass on our culture to the younger generation of Abruzzese Italian Americans. We also believe in sharing a common identity as not just members of the Abruzzese community but also as part of the greater Italian-American community, participating in a variety of cultural and charitable events throughout the year.
Please take some time to look at our website and check out our Calendar of Events, and see what events may interest you. Hopefully you will consider joining and becoming a member of this vital and energetic group of Italian Americans, whether you are of Abruzzese heritage or not, as we also extend an invitation of membership to all who are interested in joining as a “Friend of Abruzzo”.
