Buona Fortuna Lodge was created in Pensacola, Florida in November 2006 by Gene Valentino, Bill Zuppa, and Rita Somma. We are profoundly grateful to these three founding members for establishing Buona Fortuna Lodge. Their vision and hard work created the wonderful lodge that local members and the public at large continue to enjoy and benefit from to this day.
