An idyllic setting of beautiful Venetian music against the backdrop of a majestic Renaissance fountain was the setting for the duel commemorations of the 65th Anniversary of the Republic of Italy and the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy held June 4, 2011 at the Italian Cultural Garden in Rockefeller Park.
The evening was hosted by the Consul of Italy in Detroit and the Italian Cultural Garden Foundation.
Fourteen colorful new Fiat 500 cars dotted the lawn of the cultural garden supplied by Fiat of Strongsville, Classic Fiat of Mentor and Fiat USA from Detroit. Enjoy these photos from the event.
