Another eventul night marked this exquisite Aperitif with over 200 people beating the tube strike and attending the event in the elegant Obika, the Italian Bar and Restaurant, just off Trafalgar Square.
For this occasion, we welcomed the finalists of Miss Italia UK 2009, with winner Fernanda Ferrari, 2nd place Georgina Graham and 3rd place Tiziana Midolo. Fernanda had to renounce to the title, but we still wish her best of luck in her career.
We also had the pleasure to see Antonio Forcione, world renowned acoustic guitar player, attending the aperitif. A sign that our aperitifs are ever so popular!
Many more guests joined us at event, often after horrendous journey due to the tube strike, but obviously they didn't want to miss yet another legendary Italians of London Aperitif! We had friends from Spain, Argentina, Germany, Australia, Russia, South Africa and many other countries, which gave the Aperitif a real International flavour. And there were also italians who had just landed for the first time to London and who came straight to our event - that's what we call dedication!
But the aperitif was just the beginning of the night...afterwards, a few guests, including Georgina Graham and the organisers of Miss Italia UK, went to the "Crystal" club, just nearby, for a dancing ending to this wonderful night.
A huge thank you to Gregorio from Obika for his assistance and collaboration in preparing this event. And a special thank you to all the staff of Obika, they were absolutely wonderful - their courtesy and professional attitude are the best reason to visit this beatiful venue.
And congratulations to Lorenzo Acanfora and Luigi Bille' , Official Organizers of MISS ITALIA UK, part of Miss Italia nel Mondo, a RAI UNO TV production
