Festival Italiano 2020 is back!

Dear Festival Italiano Friends,

So far 2020 has been a difficult year, and the future is still uncertain. Yet at the Dante we want to be positive, forward looking, and contribute to the post-Covid social and economic recovery. So I am pleased to inform you that on Saturday 27 June the Dante Committee voted in favour of holding Festival Italiano in 2020, and further promoting Italian culture with an Italian Festival Season in Auckland. 

Naturally this will be more challenging than ever before, our funds are limited this year, and we had to change plans several times to be able to reach this outcome. Once again we would like to thank the Waitematā Local Board and Newmarket Business Association for their generous support. 

The proposed date for the Festival day in Newmarket is Sunday 8 November, and we invite all those interested in attending as stall holders, and those who wish to support us by becoming sponsors, to contact us asap.

Market: fede.evangelisti@gmail.com
Sponsors: alessandra@oratia.co.nz

Con affetto,

The Festival Italiano Team
