Ciao Italia

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Wed 14 Jun ’17, 6:00pm – 9:30pm


The Colombo, 363 Colombo Street, Sydenham, Christchurch


All Ages

The Italian Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand (ICCNZ; ), with the local support of Christchurch Dante Society, and The Colombo will host an Italian-themed evening, called “Ciao Italia”, showcasing: Italian imports of any kind (with retail sales), Italian institutions operating in New Zealand, New Zealand based Italian producers and professionals, activities in term of Italian language and culture.

Visitors can expect Italian food and wine (both imported and locally made) to taste, to take home, or to consume on the spot. There will be fashion, as well as home and art design. There will be demonstrations on how to make gnocchi, and how to tie a scarf (in 21 ways).

The entertainment comprises classical music (Luca Manghi, flute, and David Kelly, piano), and the Christchurch School of Music String Quartet; there will be Italian Canzoni (Claudia Lues and her chorus), and the Dante Tarantella group.

There will be a number of much-loved Italian cars and Vespa, and the students of the Dante Society language school; there will be representatives of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand (organiser of the event), and of the Italian Programme of Research in Antarctica.

This is the first time for such event: if successful, it may well be back again. And in the end, the question will be: what took you so long?!
