"Paese che vai, usanza che trovi: Regional Customs, Traditions and Superstitions"--The theme of this year's collaboration between ITANJ and the Coccia Institute for the Italian Experience in America at Montclair State University!

A full house of 350 students and teachers from four middle and 10 high schools participated in this annual showcase/competition among schools throughout New Jersey. Featuring original skits in Italian, written by the students themselves, complete with elaborate costumes, scenery and musical accompaniment. Additionally, an Italian-themed online game of Kahoot! added to the merriment, after the rousing chorus of Italian and American national anthems. Congratulations to all our participating students and their justifiably proud teachers. This years' performances were absolutely phenomenal. BRAVI!!! Grazie mille, our terrific panel of judges, our enthusiastic student volunteers and our ace ITANJ Organizing Committee!
