UK largest Italian Fair took place at the Olympia premises, near Earls Court and it was yet another resounding success.
As for the 2008 edition, this year the opening of the Exhibition was marked by a wonderful Gala Night, which took place at the Intercontinental Hotel, in Park Lane. The night was the stage for the Dolce Vita Tributes to personalities from the Italian scene. Amongst the receivers of the awards, were superb pianist Giovanni Allevi, Matteo Cordero Di Montezemolo (from poltrona Frau), Michaela Piva (from Gianfranco Ferre'), Massimo Ostillio (Regione Puglia).
And a real treat was the "gastronomic" part of the evening with a menu prepared by 4 fantastic world-renowned chefs Francesco Mazzei of L’ Anima, Andrew Needham of Zafferano, Giorgio Locatelli of Locanda Locatelli, Theo Randall of the eponymous restaurant - they all received an award each for their exquisite achievements in the food industry.
A special mention goes to the brillian jazz musician Antonio Forgione, who deligheted the audience with extracts from his latest works.
