Sydney Italian Festival Italian Trade Commission organises corresponding Italian Festivals in various parts of the world. The Italian Festival serves as a model for subsequent initiatives throughout the year, coinciding with celebrations for Italian “Festa della Repubblica” on 2nd June, and displaying the best of what Italy has to offer. The 2009 edition of the Sydney Italian Festival represents the sixth edition of a tested and successful event, whose primary objective is to propose a sophisticated and “aggressive” image of “Made in Italy” products and services, overcoming the many stereotypes which unfortunately continue to be associated Italian produce and merchandise.

Throughout the three week period of the Festival, across more than 200 events, the city of Sydney will be able to once again discover some of the finest attributes Italy has to offer, such as eno-gastronomic culture, the excellence of Italian design and fashion, art and culture, cinema and much more.
