The celebration party and concert will take place at Villa Aurelia on the evening of 28th April. Villa Aurelia is one of the most beautiful properties in Rome with its green gardens and fountain. A typical Italian “aperitivo” will be served followed by an eno-gastronomic journey through four Italian regions: Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio and Campania.
