Brisbane News published several features on Italian Week.

Today our official media partner Brisbane News published several features on Italian Week. It has excelled in presenting Italian culture and the Official Italian Festival in a most positive and realistic light. Kylie Lang, Editor of Brisbane News, is an Italian at heart, she has studied and lived in Italy, and knows and understands its culture and customs. In her column Kylie talks about the integration of Italians and how our traditions have been accepted and finally embraced by Australians.

We wish to thank Brisbane News for the excellent coverage and for helping us with the ongoing education of Italian culture and customs in Australia.
