This event is very popular in the Italian Community in London as it celebrates "Ferragosto", i.e. the 15th of August, the most important day of Summer for Italy and other latin countries such as France, Spain, Portugal.

Of course anyone - of any nationality - is most welcomed to join!
***





Siete a Londra per la giornata piu' importante dell'Estate? Magari vivete qui da anni e non avete mai celebrato il Ferragosto, o forse siete solo di passaggio nella capitale inglese ma non volete perdere le buoni abitudini di ricordare questa festa? Ecco per voi l'occasione che cercavate!

Diciasettesima edizione della Pizzata di Ferragosto, quest'anno in una ottima venue in centro. Un occasione imperdibile per ricordarci, tutti insieme, che il 15 Agosto non e' un giorno come gli altri qui in UK, ma il punto cruciale dell'estate Italiana!

Anche quest'anno prevediamo una grande affluenza (date un occhiata alle foto dell'anno scorso : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151193552501321.500037.77069546320&type=3 ), e contiamo quindi di accogliere i tantissimi italians che si uniranno a noi : chi vive e lavora a Londra, studenti, stagisti, chi a Londra e' di passaggio in questi giorni di vacanze estive o per le Olimpiadi e chi...a Londra ci si e' perso!

Questa sara' l'occasione per molti di voi per conoscere nuovi amici, ritrovarne magari di vecchi ma sopratutto vivere un pezzetto di estate "Italiana" nel cuore di Londra! Dimenticavamo : non portate ciambelle e asciugamani da spiaggia (il British Summer non promette bene!)...ma le vostre macchine fotografiche si'! E ricordate la parola d'ordine : VIVA IL FERRAGOSTO!

Per tutti i dettagli e per iscriversi, fate il RSVP o mandate un email a : ferragostopizzata@italiansoflondon.com

    Hi Giancarlo may I ask you why you opted for that pizzeria?

    August 12, 2013

    • Giancarlo P.

      Hi Massimiliano : it's because it's large enough (it contains up to 190 people), we have known the owners for over 10 years, we wanted to have it in a different area of London (the last 4 pizzate were in the West End) and - most importantly - many people know Santa Lucia and like it :-)

      Ok coolio

      1 · August 13, 2013

  • Giancarlo P.

    We are snowed under lots and lots of request to attend this event, with currently over 120 people already registered.

    This is the 17th edition (yes, we started in 1997!!) and if you are Italian (or Spanish or French) you certainly don’t need to know anything more

    Have a look at this photo from the past 10 editions ;-)

      Hi Giancarlo i strongly believe that would be important to provide at least an orientation were the pizzata is going tp be held . Only at that stage many of us will be able to confirm if we are going to attend it or not. If it will be far from the centre i am decline the invitation. Ciao e prendila easy!!!

      August 12, 2013

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Massimiliano - we absolutely agree with you ... and indeed the name of the venue has been specified in the Event details and in the Event description for quite few days now ;-)
