While our journeys to Rome may be different, AWAR members share a commitment to this beautiful community and the people who live here.
Founded in 1955 at the suggestion of then U.S. Ambassador to Italy, Clare Boothe Luce, The American Women’s Association of Rome (AWAR) is a non-political, non-sectarian, and not-for-profit organization. The mission is to promote friendship among our members and understanding between Italy and the United States through cultural, educational, social events and community service.
Participating in AWAR offers unique opportunities for personal enrichment and connection to the community.
