50,000 people attended “Italia, amore mio!” the event, which came to the third consecutive year and was organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ICCJ)
A festival that held all lovers of Italy in Japanese territory with bated breath has growing year by year and aims to update the image of Italy in Japan.
This year’s edition saw the Unesco sites at the centre of tourism promotion thanks to Mirabilia, the association that unites 13 Chambers of Commerce throughout Italy, linked, in fact, to UNESCO sites still less known in our area.
” Italia, amore mio! It was born from the idea of telling a new Italy, made up of young people and values. An Italy that looks at life with love and elegance in all its aspects, from food to engines, travel and all the other sectors in which our country expresses its excellence “proudly declares Antony Strianese, president of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
