italian Republic Day
Despite a forecast of cyclonic winds and storms, the sun shone on Sunday 30 May as we
celebrated the Annual italian Republic Day. Big, brash and bountiful are the words we
could use to describe this day on which we celebrated all things italian including food,
wine and cars.

We were graced with the presence of NSW Premier Kristina Keneally and a myriad of
special guests including leader of the Opposition Barry O’Farrell, italian Consul General
Dr Benedetto Latteri and Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, Member for Smithfield
Ninos Khoshaba and Member for Fairfield Joe Tripodi.

Our first ever home made wine and crostoli competition was a hit and attracted a lot of
attention. After much taste testing Domenico Di Stilio took out the winner’s trophy for
best home made wine with Quirino Bianco awarded runner up. Loredana Mace was the
inaugural first prize winner for best crostoli, followed by Maria Portolesi as runner up.

Many thanks once again to all our stall holders and supporters including Fr Anthony
Fregolent and Rose Pangallo who arranged the commemorative mass celebrations, the
italian Made Social Motoring Club and Ducati Owners Club of NSW for showcasing their
beautiful machines and the Association Maria SS Delle Grazie Santuraio Di Tresilico for
once again filling our tummies with fresh home made zeppole. Plus a final thank you
to Ettalong Beach Tourist Resort, Travelscene Horsley Park and the Chiffley Group for
offering a variety of prizes for the major festa promotion.
