American Int'l Club of Rome was founded in 1953 by Henry Luce the founder of Time magazine, the husband of the U.S. Ambassador to Italy Clare Boothe Luce whom felt there was a need for an organization that would provide opportunities for meeting regularly with other Americans.  The club has transformed into an internationally focused non profit organization based in Rome with the goals of promoting American culture in Italy. Today the tradition of Honorary President and Vice Presidents continues with each US Ambassador to Italy, The Holy Sea and the US UN mission.
