Looking for all things Italian? Then you won’t want to miss The Italian Cultural Foundation’s upcoming celebration at Casa Belvedere on Staten Island.
One Weekend-Two Great Events. On the weekend of September 28 - 29, 2013 atop picturesque Grymes Hill, the exquisite mansion known as Casa Belvedere will present Motori D’Italia -- Exotic Italian Car & Motorbike Show – as a highlight of its annual Festa D’Italia.
The eye-candy motoring event will take place on Saturday, starting at 11 a.m. with a sampling of the alluring vehicles on Sunday as well.
“We are delighted to once again offer this exclusively Italian showcase, which annually pays tribute to some of the auto industry’s greatest marquees,” said Michael Pucciarelli, one of the Motori D’Italia chairpersons. The display will provide an opportunity to get a close-up look at some of the most distinctive -- new and classic – Italian performance cars, luxury automobiles and motorbikes, such as Alfa Romeos, Ferraris, Fiats, Lamborghinis, Lancias, Maseratis, Vespas and Ducatis.
Festa D’Italia will feature continuous music and entertainment, Italian specialty foods and pastries, wine tasting, exhibits, culinary demonstrations, games, rides, crafts, raffles and more.
Casa Belvedere is located at 79 Howard Ave., in the Staten Island community of Grymes Hill.
Admission to any one day of the event is only $10 for adults; children age 12 and under, accompanied by an adult, are admitted free of charge.
Festa D’Italia hours are: Saturday (Motori D’Italia day), 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For additional information about Motori D’Italia and Festa D’Italia, The Italian Cultural Foundation may be reached at 718-273-7660.
