Letters of Support from Cr Andrew Wines

It is with pleasure that I write to support the efforts of Italian Festival Inc for organising Italian Week, an initiative of the Consulate of Italy in Queensland and Northern Territory.

Over the past five years since Italian Week’s inception, the organisers have arranged high level multicultural festival, which celebrate Italian culture and lifestyle and is fully integrated with the Queensland institutions and government organisations.

We have seen many rich cultures events which have been offered free to the citizens of Brisbane Queensland including several concerts in the Queen Street Mall, collaboration with The Gallery of Modern Art, The Queensland Symphonic Orchestra, Opera Queensland and many others.

Italian Week has become the focal point for the Italian Community and for Australian interested in the many facets of cultural and multicultural activities of one of the World’s oldest and richest civilisations.

The organisers have put together programs over the years that have incorporated many groups and organisations both of Italian and non-Italian backgrounds who have come together to celebrate the richness that each culture brings when they are fused into the unique landscape of Multicultural Queensland.
Italian Week represents a great opportunity for truly celebrating the many generations of immigrant culture present in Queensland.



Yours sincerely


Andrew Wines,

Councillor of Enoggera Ward
