||The Trevisani, scattered around the world, began
to form groups of friends from their towns and today they
are known as “Trevisani Nel Mondo” (Trevisani in the
World). Many large cities abroad have such clubs, including the
City of Windsor, Ontario. It was established in 1964, and the club's
first get-together was called “Il Banchetto
Del Radicchio” (The Radicchio

Egidio Dario, Gino Favaro, Elio Grando
and Ennio Petruzzi.
In 1976, there was another celebration of the “Radicchio” at St.
Patricks Church Hall, in Windsor. Egidio Dario, Gino Favaro, Natale
Martin and Albio Masaro organized this festival. It was then officially decided
to establish the club.
Two years later, in 1978, the first directors of the club were elected.
After a symposium, helped by Don Canuto Toso’s many suggestions,
various people were approached for positions of responsibility
within the club: the first President was Egidio Dario, Vice President,
Bruno Cusinato, and Secretary/Treasurer, Maria Battagin. From then
on, many people were involved in the advancement of the club. The
following are the 2005 - 07 members of the executive committee: President
Egidio Dario, Forner President Maria Battagin, Vice President Natilie Martin,
Treasurer Pietro Quagliotto and Secretary Norma Minello Popovich.
The purpose of the “Trevisani Nel Mondo” club is to
provide friendship, to share amongst themselves and their
children the common heritage and culture of their land, and to
spread the traditions and the virtues of their people.
