The History

The Valtarese Foundation Inc., was born in New York City from the dream of two men Mr. Giuseppe A. Cacchioli and Gianfranco Capitelli who wanted to keep alive the connections between Italian immigrants living in New York City and their hometown of Borgotaro, a small town in the Emillia/Romagna in 1991. The dream became a reality and the foundation has grown to include members from many neighboring geographical areas.

 

Our Vision

The Valtarese Foundation hopes to maintain a cultural historical link between inhabitants of the valleys of Alto Taro and Ceno in the province of Parma and the Valitaresi and Valicenesi immigrants in the New York Metropolitan area.

 

The Mission

In its efforts to develop and strengthen the relationship between Italians and Val Taro and Italo-Americans living in the New York Metropolitan area.
The Valtarese Foundation is committed to raising money to support its members on both continents. The Foundation offers financial assistance to medical facilities and assisted living areas and centers in the Alta Val Taro and the Alta Val Ceno. The Foundation also funds scholarships for students in Italy and the New York area who plan to continue their studies at the university level. In addition, each year, it proudly recognizes the personal and professional accomplishments of decedents from this region.
