Ospitalita’ Italiana 2021
The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Sydney alongside the Embassy of Italy – Canberra, the Consulate General of Italy – Sydney and the Consulate of Italy – Adelaide is launching this site as a successor to the Cucina Italian guidebook released last year to promote the excellence of the Italian cuisine.
Italian cuisine is the result of historic centuries-old processes crafted by a society that has always led the way during significant moments in human civilization. With Italians’ intrinsic focus on human relationships and quality of life, the culture of the table has become, over the course of time, a symbol of hospitality and welcome, and the food has taken on the same cultural significance and value as art and music. For these reasons, Italian food should be considered an important contribution to humanity’s heritage and should be defended and protected from adulteration and imitation to preserve its history, culture, quality and authenticity.
The Italian National Tourist Board has launched the first international radio station for the promotion and relaunch of Italian tourism. Each day tourism news in various languages from 23 countries around the world will be broadcasted with music, insights, and well-known personalities at the national and international level. Download the app from your Apple App Store, Google Play, Huawey App Gallery, Amazon Alexa and Google home, or click on the image to listen. Don’t miss our English language program “AUSTRALIANS LOVE ITALY” every Tuesday at 8 pm (AEST) and will be repeated Wednesdays at 12 pm, Saturdays at 10 pm and Sundays at 2 pm (AEST).
Among the activities of the sixth edition WEEK of ITALIAN CUISINE in the WORLD the Italian Cultural Institute of Sydney proposes a series of three video-stories, produced in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Canberra and with the Association Ponte tra Culture of Ancona, in which three actors tell the story of a prestigious wine brand, that of Chianti Gallo Nero, and that of the accidental birth of two products of gastronomy, simple but refined and very popular in Italy: Turin breadstick and Genoese farinata. The three historical episodes are told in English by David Westgate (Chianti Gallo Nero), Giorgios Gavridis (Grissino) and Harry Dean (Farinata) and the videos are directed by Gianluca Barbadori. The videos will be available on the Institute’s YouTube channel starting from 22 November. Videos can be found below:
