In the summer of 2011, we partnered with Volterra Teatro to organize a special event: The Festival of Light. As a dinner show directed by, Sergio Carrubba and Paola Ciucci, Dolceria del Corso Catering took lead in planning and organizing the dinner. We provided elegant Tuscan dishes to be enjoyed under the beautiful projections casted upon the buildings of Piazza dei Priori.

In honor of Italy's birthday, Giancarlo created a cake roughly 2 meters in size on scene.
