This past weekend at Warner Bros. Studios, the Consulate General of Italy alongside members and friends of the Italian community in Los Angeles came together to Celebrate Italian National Day. With a bit of movie magic in the air, guests enjoyed a taste of the dolce vita with an evening aperitivo showcasing the best of Made in Italy with support from Vibram, ITA Airways, Ferrari, and Peroni among many others. 

The evening’s program was hosted by Olympian Jason Richardson, a member of the LA2028 Olympic Organizing Committee, along with remarks from Consul General, Raffella Valentini. In the spirit of the Federico Fellini inspired fete, the celebration also included a fashion show featuring new collections from a selection of young designers at Accademia Del Lusso, a leading post-secondary design school, based in Milan. 

As the night carried on, we sipped, and nibbled, and danced to Italo Disco tunes, the spirit of sprezzatura emanating from the crowd as a good time was had by all.
