Il Soggiorno The Refugee Reading Room

Imagine a place like your living room, where forcibly-displaced people are welcome to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, a hope-filled conversation and simple friendship with people who care. That is the dream of Il Soggiorno! Each week, 12-15 refugees from 6-8 countries stop for help with English or Italian language and are met with hot tea and warm smiles by volunteers like yourself.

Il Soggiorno is open Thursdays and Saturdays, 3:30-7:00 pm. You’re welcome to stop by for a few minutes or an afternoon! Contact Tim Uthmann for more info: 327.324.3457 or Il Soggiorno is located at Via IV Novembre 108 (near Piazza Venezia).
