Bric-a-brac, 1980s bomboniere, starched doilies, vinyl records, Bessemer pots, souvenir tea towels and romance novels are among the typical items you'll find in an Italian grandmother's home.
Get what you need to live "la dolce vita" at Nonna's Flea Market at Fogolar Furlan, Briar Road, Felixstow on Sunday, November 19 from 11.30am-2pm.
The market is one of about 70 events planned for this year's Adelaide Italian Festival. Running from November 10-19, it celebrates world-class Italian food and wine, art, fashion, culture, music, and traditions. Among the free and ticketed activities are an opening night street party in the city's East End, food and wine events, a journey mass at the Cathedral, car display, migration stories, theatre, community bike ride and more. It's not all just in the city; events are also being held in the Barossa and McLaren Vale.
Festival chair Tania Milohis was thrilled to have so many community clubs, businesses, and the wider community on board this year's festival - its biggest yet.
"Our vision for the festival is to invite people of all backgrounds to immerse themselves into Italian culture. Our aim is to transform Adelaide into little Italy for ten days and we want to give people an experience and memories with a classic Italian flavour."
The Adelaide Italian Festival also coincides with La Settimana Della Cucina Italiana, a week dedicated to highlighting Italian cuisine.
Free printed copies of the full program are available at all Romeo's Supermarkets across Adelaide. The program and all ticket information are also available online.
