Join us at Festival Italiano for a full day of free entertainment! Enjoy the eclectic Italian music selection by Luca Montagni, and Napoli Central‘s jazz with a Parthenopean twist. The Auckland Mandolinata Orchestra will also return with a unique repertoire dedicated to the Festival Italiano, while young Tenor Cameron Casey will perform some of the most popular opera arias.
Plus there will be spot prizes, more live music, Tarantella dances, buskers, exhibits and marching Roman soldiers in Rialto Centre, Lumsden Green and all around Newmarket. There will be a new area for the children, zona bambini, inside Rialto Centre (upstairs, in the Food Court) with art-making activities with Auckland Art Gallery and Dante Alighieri School, and many more surprises during the day.
