History of the American Business Group
The American Business Group holds bi-monthly luncheons in Milan and in Rome, usually the third Thursday of the month.
The group traces its roots to the British-American Club, a gentleman's club for expat executives. Founded in the 1970s by Richard Murray, the club was located in Corso Venezia 16, Milan.
Eventually the club disbanded but members continued to meet occasionally for lunch. Overtime the lunch series opened up to women and to all nationalities.
In 2014 the lunch series expanded to Rome.
Today the group is maintained through the good will and the support of volunteers.
