Olympics Street Event on Lyon Street (from the 4th till the 6th of august)
organized by “Fiera del Riso”- Italy.
The Rice Festival in Isola della Scala (Verona-Italy) is an event associated with a singular agricultural product, Vialone Nano Veronese rice IGP (Protected Geographical Indication).
The Festival is held every year between September and October and in the 2011 edition attracted an amazing 600.000 visitors. The served dishes, essentially risotto and other products based on rice, came to more than 400.000.
The success of the Festival and of “isolana risotto” is shown by national and international appointments involving the dish in the forefront and has pursued the organizers to found “Sistema Pianura”, a society born with the aim to promote the Italian food farming products.
This year the Rice Festival has been beginning a collaboration with the restaurant at 327 Caledonian Road where we are sending Italian products as rice, oil, ham, wine and from the next week one of our best chef of Isola della Scala will work there for about two months, cooking “isolana risotto” and other Italian special dishes.
Our intent is to organize an Olympics street event on Lyon Street from the 4th till the 6th of august to celebrate the Italian cyclist and equestrian Olympics achievements.
During the event we intend to cook risotto and sell our products, without coming into conflict with Cally traders and residents.
We would like to locate in Lyon street regular container kitchens and some little tent structures and as we have to deliver everything from Italy, we are asking to last the event for more than two days.
We appoint as our delegate Mr. Andrea Scalise who will work to grant permission from Islington Council and from Met Police.
