History
The Club ItaloAmericano of Green Bay was founded in 1994 by Riccardo Paterni, a young man from Lucca, Italy, who was working on his Master’s Degree at the University of Green Bay (UWGB). The Club started with a founding core of about a dozen people. They set to work on continuing to bring in people who had a passion for Italy, its heritage and way of life.

Along the way the Club members recognized that to keep the language, the culture and the mystic of Italy alive for future generations the youth of today must be taught about Italy, its language and culture.  Thus, after a number of years of work to establish Italian as a language choice with the Green Bay Area Public School District, the first Italian language class was offered at Preble High School in 2008.    The future looks promising.
