QUI ITALIA
7 days of Italian atmosphere in the ‘green’ heart of Sofia

17 - 23 June 2010

QUI ITALIA, which has reached its third season, is now known and appreciated by the people of Sofia. The idea of creating a moment where Italians can meet with friends of Italy as it is done in traditional Italian popular festivals, was rewarded with a spontaneous consensus, thus starting to grow and getting on the way to becoming an institution, an annual appointment that will be richer in events and attractions. For one week in Sofia, we will breather Italian air, with its cultural, artistic, musical and gastronomic varieties. We know that our effort to surprise you, bringing a new taste of Italy to Sofia, will be rewarded by your affectionate and numerous participation.
Rendezvous at the lovely oasis of “Lyatna estrada” in the Borissova Gradina Park.
