Prizes include a gift certificate to a restaurant; a really nice bottle of wine; a 6-pack of Dante's favorite Birra Peroni; and a print by our own Andree LeBourveau! Winners will be announced at the first movie in the Winter/Spring series. You don't have to be present to win! To join, click on Membership.
Thank you! Our membership dues help us keep our Italian cultural programs alive as well as supporting our annual scholarship program.

The Dante Alighieri Society of Santa Cruz has awarded two scholarships of $1,000.00 each to Cabrillo College students Renata Zacarias and Chloe Nelson! More info here
