Mazzini-Verdi Club looking forward to reopening

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s been a long, eerily quiet year at the Mazzini-Verdi Club in Franklin Park. The once-bustling facility at 9230 W. Belmont Ave. has been shuttered since March 2020 because of the pandemic, and club leaders and members are looking forward to returning to business as usual.

“The club is like a second home to us, and we deeply miss gathering there, but the safety of our members comes first,” says Mazzini-Verdi President Bernard Ghilarducci. “We’ll be reopening as soon as the state of Illinois gives us the green light, and we’ll, of course, be following all guidelines and restrictions.”

Founded in 1933, the Mazzini-Verdi Club has a full kitchen, banquet area, full bar, satellite television, card room, three indoor bocce courts and ample free parking. At full steam, the club hosts a cenetta each Monday and regular bocce tournaments along with a St. Joseph Table, Easter party, Mother’s Day dinner, Festa Fuori, President’s Ball and other special events. The facilities are available to rent by outside organizations and nonmember families.

The reopening will be announced in Fra Noi and via letters to members and friends of the club.
