Mark Your Calendar: 2024 Mediterranean Chapter Meetings in Spain and Italy

The Mediterranean TCC Chapter has announced plans for the following events in 2024:

March 16 — Altafulla (Tarragona)
Hosted by our first Chapter Coordinator, Martin Garrido, in the charismatic old “Forn del Seynor,” where you can see many copies of incunabula books, it will allow us to relive the sensations of our first informal meetings, started 10 years ago, always accompanied by a tasty “pica-pica.”

July 13 — Bologna
Hosted by one of our youngest and most enthusiastic members, Siriana Sopranzi, we want to go back  to Italy in order to meet all the members who live there. No doubt that the cultural possibilities are first rate, but we will also take the opportunity to do a Bolognese cooking master class.
