The Italian Experience has grown to be a popular Long Island tradition, celebrating Italy's gifts of culture, education and commerce to America.

Each year Hofstra presents an Italian festival, drawing thousands of people from the tristate area. Unlike any other Italian festival, the Hofstra celebration emphasizes the many Italian contributions to American culture.

New to this year's entertainment lineup are singers Teo Ricciardella and Vanessa Racci.

Returning entertainment includes festival emcee Cav. Josephine A. Maietta, president, AIAE, and radio host of Sabato Italiano on WRHU-88.7 FM; Bronx Opera Company and the Long Island Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra.

Admission: $6.00 adults, $5.00 seniors/Free for children under 12.
