Culture – During its history Italy has originated notable inventions, arts and sport that have become synonymous with the Italian identity and their culture. “Soccer” and the passion for this sport is well-known, all Italians in the world stop to watch the “Azzuri” in the World FIFA Cup Championships.

The other passion “Bocce” was developed in its present form in Italy and played where Italian immigrants settled which helped keep people connected. However, the biggest passion for Italians is wine and there would have been no wine without Grape Stomping!

Curated Italian Music – Music has always been a key aspect of the Italian culture and traditions and we hope that our carefully selected compilations will be palatable to your refined Italian musical taste.

Literature – In the spirit of literary sharing Festitalia presents an Author Series that profiles authors who have written novels that will be of interest to many. Also, some will gain insights about their personal story and road to writing their books.
