The “Settimana della Cucina Italiana nel Mondo” now in its 5th edition, emphasises and promotes the quality of Italian cuisine paying particular attention to the Mediterranean Diet (of which November 16 marks the 10th anniversary of the UNESCO recognition) and the style of balanced, healthy and sustainable life that it promotes, and which can be within everyone’s reach.

The Dante Alighieri Society WA joins the celebrations by proposing a “Cultural Evening” titled “La Dieta Mediterranea Patrimonio Universale dell’Umanità” which has become the typical nutritional system of the populations that, until the 1950s, colonised the Mediterranean basin.

The “Serata Culturale” will have our Consul, Nicolò Costantini, introducing the evening highlighting the importance to promote the quality of the Italian cuisine. The evening will be presented by our Chairperson, Alessandro Vero, who as a Pharmacist started a course of studies that has made him, today, a scientist of Human Nutrition, member of the NSA, Nutrition Society of Australia.


Tickets will also be available at the door  on the night of the event with EFTPOS facilities, pending on availability. Please send and email to to confirm
