The Father Vincent Monella Center of Italian Culture: was founded in 1960 in Newark, NJ, as Casa Italiana, by the late Father Vincent Monella. It was changed to its current name to honor the memory of Father Monella, its founder, and moved to its current address in South Orange in 1998. Its goal has been and continues to be to promote the Italian Language and culture. The Center is a great supporter of the activities of the Italian classes and the Italian Cultural Club at Columbia HS in Maplewood, NJ.
The Italian Cultural Club:
at Columbia HS in Maplewood has been active since 2001. Every year since its inception, it holds activities related to the Italian language and culture, in the high school, within the communities of South Orange and Maplewood and beyond. It continues the tradition begun in 1992 by the Italian classes at Columbia. Therefore, every year it holds an Italian Night, takes students on trips related to the Italian culture and language and participates in the local Columbus Day parades. The latter is in conjunction with the Father Monella Center of Italian Culture. At the end of each parade the Club is always invited to return to the Center for a delicious Italian meal.
