Italian Week Illumination



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 and the Brisbane Italian Festival is proud to once again support Hear and Say
