MONTHLY MEETINGS: Monthly meetings at the British Institute cover League business, including time for coffee, brioche and socializing. Each meeting typically ends with an interesting speaker usually from the Florence area.
AILO BAZAAR: Launched in 1975, AILO has members from all over the world – Over the years AILO has funded numerous projects submitted by members for charities in Florence and its province. Funds are raised through a Bazaar organized and conducted annually by its members in December.

Please support our Bazaar – many exciting things and gifts to buy – a wonderful lottery and silent auction. A day out for everyone.
