2009 Ciao, Italia! Festival

Posted By on Fri, Oct 9, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Ever since I saw the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, I’ve always wanted to indulge in a salty affair with an Italian man. Sigh. If only ... Anyway, you should definitely check out the 2009 Ciao, Italia! Festival going down all day on Sat., Oct. 10. The entertainment will be non-stop. Have you ever wanted to learn how to make mozzarella? Watch international pizza toss champions display their talents? You can do that here, in addition to attending book signings by several local Italian authors, enjoying performances by the Opera Carolina Chorus, the Northwest School of the Arts Chamber Group and Italian singing sensation Franco Corso from San Remo, Italy, and of course, eating plenty of pasta and Italian ice. Rome may not have been built in a day, but you can indulge in plenty of Italy’s rich culture in one day by hitting up this annual fest. $3, free for children 12 and under. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Wachovia Atrium, 301 S. Tryon St. For more information, call 704-614-3822. See flyer below for more details.
