Welcome to Italian Week 2015
Celebrating the Italian National Day and in its 9th year now, Italian Week 2015 (26th May to 2nd Of June) will once again shine the light on all things Italian in Queensland.
Together with our partners, the Brisbane City Council, Queensland Government, the Treasury Casino and many others, Italian Week 2015 presents 'An Italian Affair'.
This year we see the addition of an exciting Italian Street festival will be held at the historical New Farm Park on Sunday 31 May, from 11am until 6pm. This delightful family event will feature lots of the wonderful offerings of Italy such as delicious Italian food and wines, operas, bands, children’s activities, Italian cars and much more. Throughout the course of the day at this FREE ENTRY event, close to 100 performers will entertain the crowds. New Farm Park was traditionally very Italian. It is the 100th anniversary of the rotunda in the park in 2015, so this will be a perfect way to mark the occasion.
From the catwalks of Milan to the Emerald Beaches of Sardinia, from the relics of Ancient Rome, to the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, Italian Week is your chance to enjoy Italy without the airfare. Italy is the ultimate epitome of classical beauty and contemporary appeal, imbued with renaissance gracefulness and cultural uniqueness. Its fashion, auto-mobiles, leather goods, gourmets and fine wine have long been the world's envy.
Italian Culture and lifestyle is firmly entrenched in the Australian cultural landscape and continues to grow in appreciation and interest. Italy is a country where you can find tradition fused with innovation. The "Made in Italy" label represents not only the highest quality achieved by all the Italian craftsmen but also the persistency they hold throughout centuries.
Italian Week celebrates the National Day of Italy, presenting the genius and Italian lifestyle and showcases the very unique Italian experience via Art, gastronomy and luxury conveyance. Stories of Italy and Italian Stories' and follow us on Facebook
