    Bellissima atmosfera e pasta favolosa pero... organizazzione pessima

    Ci avete fatto aspettare 1 ora e mezzo fuori dalla Cucina Asellina. Il butta fuori non lasciava nessuno entrare, solo quelli che avevano conoscenze, come sempre tra l'altro e quello fa onestamente schiffo. Dopo ci hanno detto che solo i primi 50 potevano entrare. Il resto ha dovuto partire, gia' tanti si erano stuffati e infatti erano partiti anche prima. Come si fa a dire a tanti di andarsene 15 minuti prima della partita quando tutti i pub intorno erano gia' pieni?

    Solo quelli che cenavono potevono sederci - il resto in piedi, come dice Gianluca 'un ghetto'. Ero venuta per vedere una partita come era specificato nel'invito, no a cenare.

    Non ho capito perche non c'era il volume con il commentario. Ho cercato a chiedere al personale pero sono stata ignorata...

    Dopo un po' di urli e spinte sono risciuta ad avere un posto seduto dentro, e' mi vengogno di averlo fatto, pero sfortunatamente era l'unico modo.

    Ciao ragazzi, luci e ombre. Mi rendo conto dello sforzo organizzativo e delle 1.200 mail ma magari per il futuro certe cose potrebbero essere cambiate. La venue era davvero troppo piccola per il numero di persone e gli schermi non abbastanza grandi. Mi è sembrato strano che non si potesse mangiare (noi siamo dovuti andare al pub di fronte) e la divisione "dentro il ghetto fuori dal ghetto" di chi sedeva per cena è stata un po' frustrante da vivere, anche per le code infinite per raggiungere banco del bar e bagno. Infine capisco che molti sono venuti per stare in gruppo, ma per gli interessati al calcio è stato spiacevole non poter vedere Uruguay-Cosa Rica.

    Avrei scelto un locale dove poter mettere 250 sedie e avrei fatto entrare i primi 250 che si iscrivevano via mail con nome e cognome, stavamo tutti più comodi e vedevamo meglio la partita. Magari ci si può pensare per il futuro, soprattutto se passiamo il girone. Grazie,
    Gianluca & Emanuela

    Ottima atmosfera ma spazio un po' piccolo, forse andavano organizzati meglio gli spazi considerato che eravamo in tanti. Comunque bello!

    2 personae maglie azzure ... Se Veniamo a south ken alle 7.00 pm c'e possibility di entrare??

    June 13, 2014

  • Giancarlo P.

    We are experiencing a phenomenal interest for this match - qe have received over 800 emails requesting attendance at our two venues!! We expect over 600 people attending ... and counting!

    The venue at Chelsea (RAI will be filming the event) is now virtually fully booked, with over 250 people attending.
    The venue on the Strand, larger, still has lots of capacity, so we recommend late comers and last-minutes fans to go there.

    There is a competition for the person/group with the best “Blue-shirt”photo – post it on our Facebook Page and tag it with #azzurriamoci Giancarlo and the very busy World Cup Team of ITALIANS OF LONDON

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Mariangela, speriamo di riuscire a rispondere alla tua email presto, ne abbiamo ricevute piu' di 800!

      Ad ogni modo, ribadiamo ancora una volta che la nostra email di risposta tutti NON garantisce l'entrata ma vi da informazioni importanti sull'evento, a cominciare dal fatto che daremo la precedenza ad entrare a chi ha la maglia azzurra (o di colore blue) e, ovviamente arriva prima. Piu' altri dettagli sulla serata.

      Chelsea e' ormai full, non credo la venue permetta di superare le 250 persone. Mentre ci dicono che c'e' ancora posto a Cucina Asellina che e' molto grande

      June 13, 2014

      Ciao Deda - abbiamo ricevuto oltre 800(!!) richieste di partecipazione. La venue di Chelsea siamo certi che sara' full capacity con oltre 200 persone, gia' a partire dalle 21.30; ti conviene quindi provare con la location allo Strand, che e' piu' grande.

    were is the venue?? its very irritating not knownig as i wasnt imformed of venue for chelsea hence why i didnt come ! you keep changing venues make your mind up !

    June 10, 2014

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Mirella, sorry to hear you were not informed whe

      We would like to take this opportunity to remind all members of this group on Meetup, that ITALIANS OF LONDON is a brand, which has existed for over 10 years. All our online Community (over 30,000 members) live on our website (www.italiansoflondon.co­m) and on our Facebook Page (over 12,000 members).

      With this in mind, we are sure Mirella you would agree that organising an event for over 600 people is not an easy task. As we are such a large Community, we have received hundreds of request to join this event (400+ on Facebook only) and we had to find a more suitable venue to try and accommodate as many people as possible.

      Kind regards,
      Giancarlo

    June 10, 2014

  • roberto

    June 10, 2014

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Roberto, no secret costs! We at ITALIANS OF LONDON know how to make the best deals ;-)

      June 10, 2014

  • Gianluca

    What happened with the event location? Saremo a South Ken ora? Non riesco a vedere l'indirizzo della venue ma forse sono io: intanto confermo che saremo in 3! Ciao e grazie.

    June 10, 2014

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Gianluca, come spiegato a Mirella, abbiamo ricevuto oltre 500 richieste ed abbiamo quindi dovuto scegliere venues piu' grandi. Tutti i dettagli saranno pubblicati qui su Meetup domani, mentre questa sera sulla nostra pagina Facebook.

      June 10, 2014

  • Giancarlo P.

    *** UPDATE on Tuesday 10 June, 9am

    We have received over 500 requests to attend this event and we are currently discussing with a number of venues the best options to accommodate as many people as possible. TV broadcasters from England and Italy have also expressed interest in following the match with us so ... make sure you have your Azzurri shirt on!

    Bear with us a few more hours and the Venue will be soon revealed ;-)

  • Marguerite

    Do we need to pay in order to know the location of the event? Please confirm and I can transfer the payment.

    June 10, 2014

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Marguerite, well, that would be an idea!! ;-)

      In fact, we are finalising the venue which will be announced this evening. The reasons for the delay are : 1) the sheer number of requests to attend (over 500 and counting) 2) Italian and British TV broadcaster have expressed interest in joining and filming our event, so we had to search for a more "tv-effective"­ venue

      A little bit more of patience and ... all will be revealed! ;-)

    Possiamo guardare tutta la partita in questo posto? Dice che finisce alle 23.45 pero la partita comincia alle 23.00, no?

    1 · June 3, 2014

    • Giancarlo P.

      Ciao Francesca e Viviana - abbiamo corretto l'orario di fine di questo evento. Certo che potete - anzi dovete! - guardare la partita nel posto che abbiamo scelto. Saremo piu' di 300 persone, stiamo ricreando infatti una vera e propria "Curva Azzurra". Avete preparato le vostre maglie e sciarpe per tifare gli Azzurri? ;-)

      2 · June 8, 2014

    • Francesca

      Grazie Giancarlo! Benissimo! Si io sono pronta per tifare l'italia! Anche se sono inglese di nascita. :-)

  • Stephanie

    I have RSVP'd yes but it starts late and I live outside of London so not sure now and might find a venue nearer to where I live that is showing the world cup. Unfortunately the World Cup is coming from Brazil so the start times are based on their clock:)
