Festitalia – Italian Festival, Sun 9 Oct 2016


Sunday 9th October will showcase Queensland’s official Italian Festival “Festitalia”. From 11am – 5pm, Spencer Park at Newmarket will bring you “The passion of Italy” with authentic Italian wood-fired pizzas, pasta, international performers, traditional Italian dances, pizza acrobatics and pizza-making masterclasses, rides, Nonni’s pasta-making kitchen and ‘Italian Bubbles’ masterclasses! The festival will host various exhibitions as well as a talent competition and will not fall short on entertainment with Aria winning artist Cosima De Vito, MKR’s Luciano & Martino (AKA The Italianos) and Italian hit performers, Xpresso Duo.  The internationally acclaimed Sbandieratori Sansepolcro will also be performing. Tickets are on sale at www.festitalia.com.au .

Co.As.It. will be among the stallholders at the event, showing our support for the Italian Culture in Brisbane and our Italian community members. If you are interested in immersing yourself even further into the Italian culture, or perhaps just brushing up on your pronunciation, be sure to check out the The Italian Language Centre  (ILC), located right next to the park on Newbery Street.

Buon divertimento a tutti!
