L’Aperitivo Italiano, an epitome of true Italian dolce vita, has been one of the most awaited social and networking event in the business community and is now on its third year.
As we start the first edition of our acclaimed business networking event, L’Aperitivo Italiano is heading to Makati City on February 08, 2018 from 06 PM to 10 PM at Dusit Thani Manila. L’Aperitivo Italiano is truly more than meeting friends and socializing – it’s experiencing an Italian gastronomic flair where guests have the opportunity to meet and interact together in a friendly atmosphere, making new friends, and creating good networking opportunities for business and work.
Aperitivo comes from “aprire” which means ‘to open’ meaning to open or to stimulate the appetite. The most common drinks during an Aperitivo are simply red and white wines from Italy, and various other drinks and mixers like Prosecco, Spritz, Campari, Bellini and many others. Italians love having this pre-dinner drink accompanied with various antipasti, cold cuts like Parma-ham, Milano-salami, various sausages, parmesan cheese with other mixed cheese plates, mini pizzas (pizzette), Caprese and other cold salads, preserved vegetables such as mini onions, bell peppers and other local delicacies.
L’Aperitivo Italiano is organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, Inc. with the support of the Italian Embassy Manila and Dante Alighieri Manila. This event was made possible through the support of the Gold Sponsors BDO Unibank Inc. and Dusit Thani Manila and enjoys media support of Travelife Magazine.
