MANILA, Philippines –  The finest in food, wine, fashion, music and innovation from Italy will arrive at Makati Shangri-La, Manila through Esperienza Italiana, a week-long festival that promises a total sensory experience of Italian culture.“This year, Makati Shangri-La, Manila pays tribute to what the Italian heritage has contributed to the world. We are pleased to invite our guests to partake of an authentic Italian experience right here in the grand halls of Makati Shangri-La,” said Alain Borgers, area manager of the Shangri-La Philippine properties and general manager of Makati Shangri-La, Manila. The celebration will highlight three main events: Aperitivo Italiano at Sage Bar, L’Artisan dinner by Michelin-starred Chef Rocco Iannone and That’s Amore, a concert featuring the Manila Symphony Orchestra.

Michelin-starred chef Rocco Iannone will also take you on a gastronomic journey through a five-course dinner entitled L’Artisan.  A firm believer in natural, unsophisticated cuisine, Chef Rocco is the owner-chef of Pappacarbone on Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
