09 Oct The Art of Espresso Premiered At Una Serata Incantata
“I would like to express my best greetings tonight on behalf of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West or La Camera di Commercio Italiana in Canada Occidentale, and I would like to thank Montauk Sofa and Valcucine’s team for being such a great partner in organizing this event and for hosting us once again in this fantastic location for this “Serata Incantata”. Celso Boscariol, President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West
On Sep 2019, on the occasion of IDS, The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West hosted an event at Valcucine Showroom.
This by-invitation Serata Incantata (Enchanted Evening) gathering was a special event as it celebrated many important occasions.
The teaser of our documentary The Art of Espresso was displayed on the screens for the first time. The Art of Espresso is a unique documentary that investigates the secret of the perfect espresso, and the rare “art” behind it!
The documentary features conversations and deep interviews with some of our esteemed members and friends who over the years and/or through family traditions have mastered this art:
- D‘Oro Gelato e Caffe‘
- Caffe‘ Umbria
- ECM – Coffee Machines
- Stile Brands
- Cioppino‘s Restaurant
- Davide Bonamici
- Bibo Pizzeria
- Antonio Arreaga, H. Consul. Of Costa Rica
- The Consul General of Italy in Vancouver (at the time of shooting), Mr. Massimiliano Iacchini
Within the occasion, we also welcomed and celebrated the arrival of the new Consul General Fabio Messineo and thanked him for his presence at the event.
The event also celebrated our guests from Italy, that were representing 2 design companies Italamp and Sogni di Cristallo, who through new trade agreements – made possible through the INN Veneto program – will be soon exporting more of their quality handcrafted 100% Made in Italy chandeliers to Vancouver!
The event was partially sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development within the program The Extraordinary Italian Taste, a program that for the last 3 years allowed us to promote awareness in North America about the authentic and certified Italian food products.
