Chinon-Certaldo (Italy) Twinning Association

Initiated in 2010, the twinning between Chinon and Certaldo is built on the networking of the hometowns of major European humanist characters: Giovanni Boccaccio in Certaldo, and François Rabelais in Chinon.

Located in Tuscany, Certaldo is at the heart of a triangle formed by the cities of Florence, Pisa and Siena.

The partnership between Certaldo and Chinon aims at fostering exchanges on cultural, touristic, economic and social matters, and building a relationship between the inhabitants of both cities.
It is also the meeting of two towns that come together in a European perspective and to further strengthen friendly bonds.

The Committee is composed of a team of volunteer members who share a love for Italy.

The association arranges showings of Italian films in italian, and school exchanges. Further projects are being put together in 2015 such as proposals for exhibitions and conferences.

A permanence is held every first Thursday each month in the Associations House (5:30 to 7:00 pm) to foster dialogue and participation.
