An estimated 4,000 people attended the second annual Italian Festa at the newly-opened residential complex Wentworth Point, where food, fashion, fun, frivolities and Ferraris were key ingredients.
The free event offered attendees a taste of Italy
The free day-long Festa celebrates La Dolce Vita – Italian for “The sweet life” – and is held at Sydney’s only Mediterranean-style residential village, The Waterfront at Wentworth Point (formerly Homebush Bay). The Waterfront at Wentworth Point has been an eveolving residential area on the edge of Sydney Olympic Park for nine years.
The Festa showcased the finest aspects of Italian lifestyle – including produce, wine, music and dance – plus a display of around 90 classic and exotic Italian-made cars and bikes, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Ducatti and Vespa.
The Piazza area offered authentic italian experiences such as boutique shopping, gelaterias and fine rod outlets and more.
The event is staged in The Waterfront’s central piazza, which recreates the cobblestone streets of Italy, and has become a fashionable milieu for social events. The Piazza offers such an authentic Italian experience you’ll have to pinch yourself that you are still in Sydney. It has bustling restaurants, a fine food delicatessen, gelataria, boutique shops with colourful canvas awnings, a European fountain, a bocce pit, a giant chess board, and magnificent shade trees.
