AboutFamilyWorld › Italy

The C&MA family in Italy is very diverse and has come together as a result of committed Alliance lay workers who have immigrated from Argentina, Peru, Ecuador and the Philippines. Only one church exclusively worships in Italian. The other churches and groups basically use Spanish, except for the Philippine congregation. Currently our groups are located in the following cities: Ancona, Bologna, Rome and Tione di Trento. The initial steps toward developing a national Alliance identity were only taken in May and October of 2011.
