Ferragosto eChimp

Ferragosto Means Heritage

Ferragosto returns to its roots this summer with a spoof of the old spaghetti Western films. This event will transform Amici Park into a scene straight from the Wild Wild West complete with a Saloon, whisky tastings, can can dancers and much more!

While this year lacks the Italian togas or venetian masks…it will certainly impress and celebrate Italians as the Pioneers we are!  


Bringing Heritage to Future Generations

Ferragosto is the event that brings our community together. Church, Public School and our neighborhood BID work together to create a strong community that celebrates the past, while positioning an opportunity for future generations. Together we have raised funds to refurbish the Little Italy sign and Piazza Basilone, creating a public space in which we all can recognize and enjoy our heritage. xWe have provided funding that has improved Washington Elementary School which now includes a STEAM program that is improving the school curriculum score ranking from a 2 to a 6 on the California school ranking index. We’ve also helped implement new cultural programs such as Italian immersion classes. And lastly, together we have raised over 500k to provide scholarships for children and funding to the Monarch school for homeless children downtown.
