Did you know that in Naples, Italy, people play cards with a completely different deck than in the USA? Join us on Thursday, April 25th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at 528 Hennepin Avenue, Suite 502, Minneapolis MN 55403, for a great evening of fun playing a traditional Italian card game while enjoying an authentic aperitivo Italian style.

Luisa and Ileana will guide you while you play scopone scientifico (NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NEEDED). Scopone scientifico is a variant of the popular scopa, a card game (gioco di carte) that every true Italian must master. And this goes along with an Italian aperitivo, perfect to chill on a Thursday evening.

The card games scopa and scopone scientifico are a big fundament of the Italian culture. Grandparents teach them to their grandchildren at an early age, and Luisa and Ileana themselves grew up playing this game in Italy with their grandparents! Read more and register
