La Bella Vita in Brisbane with Alessandro Sorbello and Mario Cali
There are plenty of Italian habits which have been embraced with gusto by Australians - alfresco dining and the consumption of great coffee to name just two.
But if Alessandro Sorbello, pictured below right with Marca chef/ owner Mario Cali, has his way, we'll soon be adpoting quite a few more. As executive producer for Italian Week (may 26-June 2) it's Sorbello's job to broaden appreciation of all that's great about Italy.
Born in Milano and raised in Australia, Alessandro has spent extensive time living and working in Italy and is the Executive Producer of the Official Italian Week festival in Queensland, an Initiative of the Italian Consulate.
