The Associazione Lucchesi Nel Mondo (Tuscany Club) of Washington, DC was formed in 1977 by the late Father Aldo Petrini, descendent of Calavorno from the province of Lucca, Italy. The purpose of the Club was to bring together immigrants and their descendents from Lucca living in the Washington area, including Northern Virginia and nearby Maryland. The Club was reactivated in March, 1996, by the former President, Rinaldo Poli under the direction of the Consulta Regionale of Lucca.
The purpose of the Association is to bring Lucchesi and Tuscans together to promote social and cultural activities and further foster the Tuscan heritage to the youth and to those descendents born in the United States.
Membership is also extended to persons interested the rich historical culture, customs, and culinary skills of an area that played a significant role in the modeling of Western Civilization.
