Vicentini Myrtleford & District


The Vicentini first began to socialize informally in Myrtleford well before they became an official circolo (or association). There were quite a few families who had been drawn to the region by the prospect of work on tobacco farms and because they either had family or “paesani” in Myrtleford.  Naturally, all missed their homeland greatly and one way to cope was to meet together over a glass of wine, a meal and to dance to Italian music. Many a good party was had in the tobacco sheds, then later at what is now Club Savoy.
