The British Mario Lanza Society was founded in 1961. Our Honorary President is Mario’s youngest daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman. Our magazine, Golden Days, is issued quarterly and we have approximately 500 members worldwide. We enjoy various get-togethers and occasional holidays. In 2003, about 30 members attended the unveiling of a bronze bust (by Ellisa), of Mario, paid for by the BMLS in his father’s home village of Filignano, Italy, along with enjoying the spectacular Mario Lanza festival, which members have returned to since then, with the marvellous singing of Gian Luca Terranova, who along with his lovely wife, Sabrina Picci, entertained us at our 2005 and 2006 get-together held in Stratford Upon Avon.
Our main get-together is held in October of each year from a Friday-Sunday morning. (See events page for this year’s details). Every January on the anniversary of Mario's birth (31 January) we hold an informal Birthday Party on the Saturday nearest to this date.
