Italia Lodge No. 2001 is a bilingual Lodge of Freemasons chartered on December 20, 2001, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the Free And Accepted Masons (FAAM) of the District of Columbia.
The Lodge performs the ritual in Italian language, in Emulation form, at the Scottish Rite Center Temple in Washington DC.
Its members are mainly Italians residing in Washington, Americans Brethren of Italian heritage or in love with Italy and interested in maintaining a close masonic link with Italy, and Italians living in Italy, but who for professional, academic or scientific reasons come frequently to the United States.
In a matter of a few years Italia Lodge 2001 has become the Masonic diplomatic bridge between the Grand Lodge of Washington DC and the Grand Orient of Italy.
