Ciao St Louis organized in October of 2016, as Missouri 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Its mission is to preserve and promote Italian culture and language. It has established itself as a multi-media outlet reaching out to the greater ItalianAmerican community, using the internet (www.ciaostl.com), social media, radio programing, presenting live Italian performances in music, dance and visual arts. Ciao StL is a proud organizer of community events that support the ItalianAmerican experience. The organization helps people discover and appreciate their Italian heritage and supports them in their search to share the love of their culture with people that have similar interests.
Some of the successes of CIAO St Louis include (1) a successful website hosting numerous features; (2) a Facebook page which has been visited by thousands of users from around the globe; and (3) a popular weekly radio show, reaching listeners from far and near. Future events include the 150th Annual Columbus Day Parade and Festa Italiana on October 1, 2017 and a traditional Carnevale celebration on February 10, 2018.
CIAO St Louis is committed to providing the best Italian cultural experience to St. Louis and the greater Italian-American community by serving as a catalyst to bring all Italians and Italian-Americans together and to provide a common forum for all organizations and clubs in our communities.
