***The sole and final recipient of the payment is the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago alone. However, members are informed that upon confirming the transfer of membership fees to the Italian Cultural Institute's bank account held at Citibank, the Zelle digital payment system states that the email address used for receiving payments is associated with the name of the Director of the Institute, Luca Di Vito. According to the rules imposed by Citibank, this is mandatory, given that the Director is the legal representative of the Institute.
