What an amazing start to the 2020 Adelaide Italian Festival.

 

It’s been a brilliant celebration of Italian culture, tradition, food, wine, music, technology, and people.

 

Due to COVID-19, and to keep all South Australians safe, it’s with a truly heavy heart that we are ending our celebration early.

 

We’ll be back in 2021 — bigger and better than ever before! Ci Vediamo!
