Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association

Avanti! (forward)

We are encouraged by the strength of our members, and we are optimistically looking forward to in-person events once again. As we continue our monthly "A Casa" online interview series and our thrice-per-month Tavola Italiana conversation groups, we're thrilled to be planning our Migration Project, sending 5 Seattle artists to Perugia, Italy to exhibit their artwork alongside 5 perugini artists at the Palazzo della Penna Museum. And we need your help!

Check out our full Calendar of activities to see how you can participate!

Perugia, Italy, is one of the 21 official Sister Cities of Seattle! Perugia is the capital of the Italian region of Umbria, next to Tuscany. Sister Cities are established to promote exchange programs and other ways to experience each other's culture and history.

By becoming a member of the Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association, you’ll experience Italian art, culture, language, and history in a way that is authentic, educational and fun. Our members help create artist exchange programs, volunteer at the SIFF Italian film festival, learn about Italian food and wine, improve their language skills through scholarships and conversation groups, and meet like-minded individuals.

Join us and open new doors to international friendships, cultural exchanges and celebration of Italian customs and traditions!
