Association Amitié Voiron-Bassano

We are an association law 1901 (declaration of constitution no. 0381013138 of September 27th, 1983 – Isère).

In keeping with the non-profit spirit of this type of association, the membership fee required to join is particularly modest; all the events we organize are either free (events, conferences) or require a simple participation in the expenses incurred (Italian cinema, travel).

ORIGIN – Our town of Voiron , gateway to the Chartreuse (Isère), is twinned with the Italian town of Bassano del Grappa (province of Vincenza in Veneto).

These are the frequent and important school exchanges organized by dedicated teachers of the Italian language, from 1975, who, weaving strong and faithful bonds of friendship, were at the origin of the creation of our association in 1983, contributing to the choice of Bassano as twin city in 1984.

Note that the city of Voiron is also twinned with the cities of Herford in Germany and Sibenik in Croatia ; to find out more, visit the Voiron Twinning Committee website.


– To celebrate Europe Day, Voiron’s twinning committee and its partner associations “Friendship Voiron-Herford”
and “Friendship Voiron-Bassano” organized an animation place of Europe.

– From October 13 to 30, the association organized in the city of Voiron, an exhibition of photographs by Enzo dalla Pellegrina of Bassano del Grappa, entitled “THE GREAT VIA DELLA SETA” (The great road of silk).
This exhibition was announced in the Gazzettino No. 65 and posters in the city.

Catalogs of the exhibition have been sold to schools in Mali; they are still enough to make original Christmas presents; price €10, on sale at MUFTI 8 rue des QUATRE CHEMINS in VOIRON.
