americanexchangev5American Exchange Rome (AER) is a network with a widely popular free eList subscription named Free Exchange (FE).

AER is the TOP network for contemporary, vibrant American & international women in Rome.  Created in 2012, the goals of this network are the promotion of camaraderie and community, exchanges of information on living and working in Rome and celebrating life with our friends and families.

EVENTS

Free Exchange women are invited to a variety of events throughout the month to satisfy everyone’s pleasure and time constraints.

Evening events include the monthly aperitivo TOAST to FREEDOM, a general gathering (held in the 3rd week of each month) for some precious face time and also welcomes partners & friends, and our monthly FEED (Free Exchange Education & Discovery), a smaller group which meets to discuss a specific topic of current interest informally guided by an invited expert.

Morning gatherings include a monthly book club group (contemporary lit.) and informal Tea Times periodically arranged in cozy tea salons & private homes.

Free Exchangers can also enjoy participating in focused elists (artists, law professionals, moms with young children, etc.) and organized activities arranged throughout the year on our favorite themes: culture& art, fitness & health, food & wine, lifestyle & nutrition, English theatre & cinema, civic & international initiatives, and community service.
