Be Italian for a week
Italians have style, and to celebrate everything Italian, the 10th annual festival 'officially' starts on 23rd May. That's when the bridges of Brisbane are displayed with lights of the colours of the Italian flag. The bridges will be illuminated until the end of the festival on Sunday 5th June. All around Brisbane you can see the colours of the flag, green, red and white, a tribute to the contribution of the people of Italy who have shared their style and culture with the people of Australia, Brisbane in particular.

The first event is 'Segno d'Italia' (Songs of Italy)
When: Saturday21st May at 7pm
Where: Enoggera Bowling Club, 72 Picking St, Enoggera

Then follows a comprehensive programme of familiar and new events including cooking classes. You may want to learn to make pasta or authentic regional cooking secrets from the women who have learnt from their mothers.

A new event this year is the Italian Golf Classic

When: Saturday 27th May at 7.30 AM
Where: Virginia Golf Club, Elliot St, Banyo
You may be lucky enough to win the Italian Golf Trophy.
