Join us in this special celebration of Italian culture.
A festival of passion mixed with art, culture and heritage makes for a mix of
fun the Italian way!
This year’s La Fiera has an added attraction with a display of artworks from the collection of the “Istituta Cultura Sicilia Australia”.
Highly acclaimed aboriginal artist Billy Doolan was invited to Sicily and commissioned by the president of I.C. A.S. - Maria Sanciolo-Bell to paint a series of paintings of significance to Sicily. The collection of eight paintings titled “Sicilian Dreaming” toured Sicily and Italy from 2012 and was the most successful overseas tour for an aboriginal artist.
Billy’s painting of Mount Etna as well as his personal statement was part of the successful submission for World heritage listing which was granted by UNESCO in 2013.
Three paintings from the collection will be on display at Michelini Wines Cellar Door and the remaining five at Myrtleford Gallery during La Fiera.
