Buffet Le Rizz

tickets / $80.

0 to 5 years / free 

6 to 40 / anniversary special $40.

A full meal with open bar and a sampling of our traditional scr’pelle,  nocche, and biscotti baked by our dear nonnas and mothers. And of course we will also be serving bowls of heartwarming  squattone  that is still being prepared today by many Duroniesi.

Join us for an evening filled with nostalgic memories of our special time in Duronia many years ago. Bring and share your cherished photos, ricami made by your mothers and nonnas, family trees and special items that decorate your homes.

Take advantage and make this evening a perfect time to have a family reunion, celebrate a birthday, anniversary, birth or other special event. Your friends and neighbors are most welcome to join us and share in the love of our “piccolo paesello”.

In 1881, emigration began to Central America and from 1945 until 1970 it continued, causing a great decrease in the village population. Duronia went from 2,600 inhabitants at the beginning of the century to the present 600 inhabitants today. Duroniesis emigrated everywhere, all over Europe, USA, Canada, South America, Australia, Bangladesh …etc. A special invitation goes out to our paesanis  all over the world.  If you happen to be around Montreal in April please let us know, we will be delighted to meet you.

To the businesses and youth entrepreneurs:

The tickets for the party will be printed by the end of March. If you wish to include your business cards, please send a copy of your card to A donation on your part for this exposure will be greatly appreciated and go towards making this evening extra special.

Also, please spread the word that we need sponsors for our raffle.

We also need costumes that resemble the traditional Molisani wear  of many years ago. If you have, please call us and we will pick them up.

Your involvement will help to highlight this 40 year anniversary for our association and will contribute to a successful and memorable event. Thank you all for your continued support over these past 40 years. Together we look forward to the next 40 years with a brand new comitato made up of duroniesi youth.
