From Venice’s famed Carnival to Berlusconi’s bunga-bunga bashes, Italian parties are the stuff of legend. So we’re psyched that Louis (60 Northern Avenue, Boston, 617.262.6100) has teamed up with the Consulate General of Italy for Italianissimo!, a party that promises to bring a little bit of la dolce vita to Boston. On the eve of the country’s National Day, this spring celebration of all things Italian will feature exclusive fashions from Louis, live entertainment, and gourmet bites from chef Filippo La Mantia of Rome’s Hotel Majestic, paired with hand-picked Tuscan wines from Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi. The party starts at 7 p.m., and proceeds will help fund Italian-language programs in local
schools and the development of a new Italian Cultural Center. Reserve your spot ($250) at italianissimo.eventbrite.com.
