Brisbane’s famous Festitalia, the one-day celebration of all things Italian to be held on Sunday 8 October, is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a world-class entertainment program announced, and enough flavour-makers to turn Brisbane into Italy for one delicious day. The internationally acclaimed Gruppo Storico Fivizzano Flagthrowers direct from Montechiaro in Italy lead the entertainment line-up, joined by the Brisbane Tarantella Dancers, swordsmen Prima Spada, historical re-enactment specialists Pax Romana, performers Diletta Luna from Brisbane and Two Italian Guys from Sydney, the famed pizza acrobat Youssef Ben-Touati, more than 30 flavour-makers and a program that celebrates Brisbane’s best Italian artists, entertainers, dancers, singers and performers. The day-long event will be hosted by James Liotta, the award-winning stage, screen and television performer. Festitalia 2017 will be held at Spencer Park at Newmarket, home to the iconic Brisbane City Football Club, on Sunday 8 October from 10.30am to 7pm. Under the Patronage of the Italian Consulate in Brisbane and the Italian Embassy in Canberra, Festitalia is Queensland’s only official Italian Festival.
