Want to eat Italian? Walk Italian? Dance Italian? Twirl a pizza like an Italian or throw a flag like an Italian? At Festitalia 2017 you can do all that and more! Under the patronage of the Italian Consulate in Brisbane and the Italian Embassy in Canberra, Festitalia is Queensland’s only official Italian Festival. The internationally acclaimed Gruppo Storico Fivizzano Flagthrowers, direct from Montechiaro in Italy, will be joined by the Brisbane Tarantella Dancers, swordsmen Prima Spada, historical re-enactment specialists Pax Romana, 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.
