Italian specialties and all the beauty and history of our country are on display until the end of the month inside the Artcaffè Merket in Rhapta Square in Nairobi.
The initiative, called "Italian Month", which was inaugurated last May 6 in the presence of the Deputy Ambassador of Italy in Kenya Lorenza Gambacorta, aims to help Kenyans discover the flavors and atmosphere of Italian culture and cuisine.
Our Embassy actively participated in the organization of the event, which will continue until May 31, as well as the Italian Cultural Institute with which the photographic exhibition "Italian Beauty" was set up, twelve shots of the Italian artist Leonardo Mangia.
The images, which depict some of the most iconic and fascinating urban landscapes of our peninsula, include shots of Rome, Venice, Matera, Turin, Udine, Trieste and the Cinque Terre.
The area of the supermarket and the wine shop-cellar have been transformed into a wonderland full of scenes, products and evocations of Italy.
Shoppers in this way will be able to discover, taste and take home authentic and traditional Italian items, from pasta and prosecco to gelato and pizza, cheese and wine and more.
Each week in May, activities related to Italian food and wine will present different tasting experiences and events to bring the diverse nature of Italian cuisine to life, including Italian street food, pizza and beer, the art of the aperitivo and many more.
"Italian food has the ability to bring people together," said Artcaffé Group CEO Sagi Vaknin, "By curating the best experiences and providing the most authentic products, Nairobi residents will be able to recreate the spirit of la dolce vita at home, in true Artcaffé style.
Customers are "guided" on the journey by an apecar with an unmistakable inscription: "La vita è bella" ("Life is Beautiful.")
