Over 30 flavour-makers will celebrate with Italian-inspired stalls and pop-ups, offering a huge range of fare from authentic espresso, pizza, grilled octopus, risotto, calamari to cannoli, gnocchi and nutella bomboloni, granita to Italian sausages, and more. And, in breaking culinary news - there will be Cannoli and Gelato Eating Competitions and don't miss the 'Ningia Nonna'- pantofole throwing competition!
The internationally acclaimed Gruppo Storico Fivizzano Flag Throwers direct from Fivizzano in Italy lead the entertainment lineup, joined by the Brisbane Tarantella Dancers, swordsmen Prima Spada, historical re-enactment specialists Pax Romana, performers Diletta Luna from Brisbane and Two Italian Guys from Sydney, and the famed pizza acrobat Youssef Ben-Touati. The event will also be hosted by James Liotta, the award-winning stage, screen and television performer.
Festitalia will host a range of exhibitions - there will be Ferrari, Vespa, Ducati, Apè, Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo displays, a photographic exhibition of Venetian masks, a display of Regio Esercito Italian Military Uniforms, and beautiful Italian Murano hand-blown glass jewellery.
