The Embassy of Italy in Tanzania is organizing an Italian Festival in Dar-es-Salaam from 18th to 20th November 2011.

The aim of Festival Italiano is to attract the attention on everything which is Italian, i.e. to create a focus point where Tanzanians as well as foreigners living in this Country could have an overview of the Italian presence in Tanzania in the different fields: industrial development, trade, culture, development cooperation, etc.

The beginning of the festival will be marked by a charity concert that will be held at the Residence of the Italian Ambassador in the evening of Friday 18th November. The entrance to the concert by Marco Castelli quartet from Venice will be at Tsh 70,000 that’s shall also include the taste of Italian Food.

“The beneficiary of the concert receipts will be the FALMI Group, which implements health and education projects in the region of Kigoma, in Kasulu district and I am very pleased to support such noble cause” stated HE Perluigi Velardi, Italian Ambassador to Tanzania

Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th November an exhibition will be organized at Forodhani Slipway, where both Italian investors in Tanzania and Tanzanian entrepreneurs doing business with Italy shall participate to promote products and services of both nations.

The Italian companies will have a chance to display and sell their local production and to promote their activities in Tanzania, whilst Italian NGOs could promote their development projects in favour of the Tanzanian population. The Tanzanian entrepreneurs doing business with Italy would also be offered a chance to exhibit their imports and promote their products and services to the public at large.
