The American International League of Florence (AILO) is a charitable organization, based in Florence, Italy.  Founded in 1975, AILO began as an informal American association and has since expanded into a highly organized club with an international flavor.

The official language of AILO is English, where it is used at all meetings, events and publications.

AILO is a volunteer organization administered by a Board elected by the members. Our mission is to contribute to community well-being through programs of social assistance and fundraising for charity within the city and province of Florence. Funds are mainly raised through the annual Christmas Bazaar held every December.
