'Tastes of Italy' part of Brisbane's 150th anniversary

On the 6th of September, as part of Brisbane's 150th anniversary Italian Week hosted the stand 'Tastes of Italy' as part of the festivities and we raised funds for the upcoming Italian Week in 2010.
Thanks to Aladino Pozzebon from Dolci Sapori and Di Bella Coffee for the support once again.

2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Brisbane. Celebrating this exceptional moment in our history Brisbane City Council will present awe inspiring events all over the city with exhibitions, a wide variety of performances, activities and events highlighting our city, its history and its people.

In 1859 the residents took Brisbane’s future in their hands, successfully petitioning the Governor of New South Wales for Brisbane town to become a municipality. Later that year the first council was established and Brisbane became the capital of the newly formed colony of Queensland.

150 years ago the vision for our city started to take shape by the people who knew it best - its residents.

As we reflect on our past, the present and imagine our future, 2009 will be a year long celebration.
