Prime Minister Albanese celebrates 50 years of Navarra Venues

Australia’s Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, led the guest list of dignitaries at Le Montage in Sydney as Navarra Venues celebrated its 50-year milestone.

The hospitality company was founded by Filippo Navarra OAM in 1974, and the 50th birthday celebrations were held at its iconic waterfront venue in Lilyfield, in Sydney’s Inner West.

Prime Minister Albanese was joined in attendance by NSW politician Stuart Ayres, Italian Consul General Gianluca Rubagotti, Lebanese Consul General Charbel Macaron, Bishop Antione Charbel Tarabay, and TV personality Karl Stefanovic.

“Just as Navarra is a name we have come to associate with the special moments in life – all those celebrations, all those bright milestones – it’s also a name that means helping people out and softening the harder moments in life,” said Prime Minister Albanese on the night.

The evening honoured the achievements of Filippo Navarra, his late wife, Sarina Navarra, and the three generations of family that are a part of Navarra Venues’ history.

“We have worked hard under the guidance of our father and mother,” said Salvatore Navarra in an address to his father on the night.

“Their direction, motivation and belief in us lead to where we are now. None of this would be possible without them and what they have done.”
