Mepham High School’s chapter of the National Italian Honor Society hosted its 16th annual Italian Culture Night under the direction of adviser and Italian teacher, Kristen Montuori.  

The evening was filled with music, poetry, games and food. Honor Society President Olivia Larocchia sang the classic, “Io che non vivo.” The theme of the evening was Carnevale and guests were treated to mask making and a poem recitation by society member Amanda LaRossa about the Italian holiday.  

“Guests wore their masks throughout the evening, simulating a true Italian Carnevale,” said World Languages Chairperson Rosa Kaplan. “The evening also included the annual game of Tombola, an Italian style-bingo, led by honor society officers, Joe Lozito and Gavin Dass.”

The Italian Honor Society would like to thank all of the Mepham families as well as the local businesses that helped to make the event successful by donating food and products. Sponsors included Bellmore Playhouse, Gino’s Tuscany, Moolala Frozen Yogurt, Gusto Divino Trattoria, Bagelicious, The Oakhurst Company, Left Coast Kitchen & Cocktails, Flowers by Voegler, Mary Bove, Piccolo Ristorante, Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace, International Delight Café, Darker Tanning, Michelangelo Salon, Rocco’s Pizza of Bellmore, Cynthia Connors, Presidio, Norman Egan and John Larocchia.
