The Italian Folk Art Federation of America (IFAFA) welcomes you to its website! We invite guests to browse several pages that explain our purpose, our activities, and our organization. IFAFA Members have additional pages for their use only.

We hope that you find our format and features very useful. Here is just a small list of features that you will find on our site:

For all guests and members: 

We strongly encourage guests to become members of IFAFA. We'd love to welcome you into our organization! You do not need to be a member of an Italian folk art troupe to participate in IFAFA!

In addition to the pages available to guests, there are the following features accessible to IFAFA Members only:

  • A database that is linked directly to our website - this allows us to maintain and present our information to you in a clear and intelligent manner. This also provides you, the user, the ability to update your own information, at your convenience. This allows us to keep all of our records as up-to-date as possible.
  • All current and past issues of Tradizioni, IFAFA's newsletter. To view a past issue, click on: Volume 19, #3 -- WINTER 2000
  • Colorplates of 200 Italian folk costumes from all regions of Italy. To view a sample colorplate from the island of Sicily, click on: Donna di Piana dei Greci/ Woman from Piana dei Greci 
  • Discussion Forum - User-submitted Questions, Answers, and Opinions, all categorized under relevant topic threads
  • Blog functionality - Went on a trip recently? Had a baby? Tell us all about it!
  • And much more!
