Italian Sagra at United Square Mall! 23-28 Oct, with The Italian Quarter!
Something we have been working for long here. Just after organizing the first The Italian Quarter Festa ever, FABItalia is proud to announce the Young Entrepreneurs Association of Singapore's SAGRA ITALIANA in United Square Mall on 23-28 October, and to be active part of the Organizing and Supporting Board. Together with The Italian Quarter, we have been requested to take care of the cultural aspect of the Sagra. The Italian Sagra is a traditional event, usually related to local products or Patron Saint, involving a whole village or community, where people celebrate drinking, eating, and watching performance together while socializing and dancing. We will try to re-propose something similar in Singapore with booths sharing their activities, products, and warmness! We will promote Italy with our booth and activities too (opera, pop music, opening speech ceremony, cultural speeches, workshops, and conference). Come and have fun!!! ============================= This event is under the patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Italy in Singapore and is organized by the Young Entrepreneurs Association with numerous influential supporting partners. Opening ceremony on the 24th October graced by diplomats from the Italian Embassy and Senior Management from UOL Malls including food bloggers and other distinguished guests. What to expect? 1. Italian wines and beers, food and snacks. 2. Traditional Italian Opera performance & a band performing Italian modern and traditional songs (it is US!). 3. A 'Tower of Pisa' where we'll have professionals looking after the children as they rock climb. 4. Workshops to re-create Da Vinci's inventions using recycled materials. 5. Free Italian coffee and snacks giveaway everyday! Sagra Italiana, Singapore's Italian Festival, will be held in United Square Mall, in the heart of Singapore from 23rd October up to 28th, 2018. United Square Mall reachable by bus and the MRT at Novena station. For the occasion also the Italian Embassy will be present, as well as it's in the same building. Carpark: United Square Shopping Mall is the destination mall for families. Positioned as A Kids Learning Hub, United Square is truly the place for fun play and learn.

If interested you can join the Circle, we meet regularly once a month in Marine Parade, in the wide and wonderful spaces given to us by the NLB!

Aperitivo, original recipes, meetups, activities, classes, workshops, movie-watching, food itineraries, seminars, events, and many others. The organizer is Fabrizio Righi, promoter of Italian Language, Culture, Cuisine by P.A.
