Società Dante Alighieri and Centro Cultural Brasil-USA
Espresso and Pão de Queijo.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012

It was a very pleasant surprise that, in despite of the winds and rain brought by Tropical Storm Sandy, so many came to the event ESPRESSO and PAO DE QUEIJO, to celebrate the partnership between the Società Dante Alighieri and the Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Florida.

The Consul General of Brazil, Ambassador Hélio Vitor Ramos Filho together with Secretary Fernando Arruda Mendonça, members and friends, of the Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Florida and Società Dante Alighieri, representatives of the City of Coral Gables, all came to visit the new CCBU headquarters at 300 Aragon Avenue, enjoy the Espresso and freshly baked pães de queijo and learn about the many contributions of the Italian immigration to Brazil.

We must thank AB Catering for providing the excellent service and MERCADO BRASIL for donating the pão de queijo. Thanks to all that braved the bad weather to be with us and celebrate the new CCBU phase.

Known as both a popular solo performer and founder/musical director of the celebrated Brazilian Voices group, Beatriz Malnic has built a passionate following in the South Florida area. Now, she pays tribute to the beloved music of Chico Buarque, reinterpreting it for a new generation. From samba to bossa nova, protest songs to pop tunes, the understated sensuality of Chico Buarque's music comes to life with a renewed freshness and vigor.
