La Dolce Italia


La Dolce Italia 


La Dolce Italia is an ongoing annual event to celebrate all things Italian. La Dolce Italia fuses Italian traditions with modern Australia to create unique events that focus on the richness of the Italian way of life. Launched in 2015 via a Gala fundraising ball with the incomparable Sophia Loren, La Dolce Italia has executed a series of events with an Italian twist since then, including a series of opera events and concerts. Working with influential Melbourne personalities and business people, La Dolce Italia has forged a reputation for executing exciting, innovative events that bring communities together and offer unparalleled experiences.


This reputation was further cemented in August 2016 when La Dolce Italia brought the ever-impressive Susan Sarandon to Melbourne to take part in a sell-out leadership luncheon and stage-show. And of course, the spectacular Carnevale Masquerade Ball held in February 2017 which received the highest accolades from the guests. Some of the guests called it the best event ever, whilst others said it was one of the top 10 events ever attended.


Melbourne loves a party but it is yet to experience the opulence of a Venetian Grand Ball with an exciting twist. Reprising the magic and mystery of La Dolce Italia’s Amore/Love Masquerade Ball earlier this year, a touch of Hollywood glamour has been added to the theme with the amazing and iconic Jane Seymour. And Voila! We have the Hollywood Meets Carnevale Masquerade Ball.


This ball will be the most sought-after social event and will become one of the most prestigious parties in the country.

  • Carnevale Australia
  • Pizza & Beer Festival
  • Gin & Vodka Festival
  • Champagne, Prosecco & Sparkling Festival
