Italian restaurants and food stalls will set up in the streets together with a pop-up Italian bar and a market with over 40 stalls, plus more free activities inside Rialto Centre, live music and entertainment, art and books for children, a special Italian products degustation area, workshops and exhibits. To complete the Festival there will be Italian cars and scooters, spot prizes, and special guests.
Festival Italiano is a not-for-profit event organised by the volunteers of the Dante Alighieri Society of Auckland in collaboration with Newmarket. and with the generous support of the Waitematā Local Board. The Festival is under the patronage of the Italian Embassy in Wellington, and the major corporate sponsor and partner for 2020 is Rialto Centre.
