"La Dolce Vita is the gift of being Italian. It's the song that is sung with romance in operatic voice...it's the phrase whispered (piano, piano) which becomes a poem...it's a mandolin echoing the Tarantella and the promise of a kiss. It's magic, love, family and traditions." Joan DeChellis, 2002
Our Mission The purpose of SICE is to achieve a deeper understanding and appreciation of Italian culture by sponsoring events and supporting the efforts of organizations that highlight Italian heritage and contribution in the greater Sarasota community.
