MITaly welcomed the new Italian students at MIT with an awesome selection of Italian Pasta from the renowned Ristorante Gran Gusto in Cambridge. At the MUddy Charles Pub, the board presented the upcoming activities and events that MITaly is organizing, including the Aperitivo Scientifico with Stefano Domenicali, and the popular MITaly dessert night! Welcome new MITalians!!

MITaly Summer BBQ

MITaly celebrated the Ferragosto festivity with a great BBQ on campus. The event was definitely a great success and the food was fantastic. The MITaly Summer BBQ provided a beautiful chance for the Italians to mix with students from different countries, and to welcome them into our community!

MITaly Venetian Masquerade Ball

Each year, MITaly organizes a cultural event to celebrate the traditional Venetian carnival. We reproduce a typical Venetian Masquerade Ball through outfits and atmosphere. Italian music, photobooth, best dress competition and much more! During the event, people had the opportunity to taste an authentic Italian dessert, “Chiacchiere”, typical of the Carnival period.
