Visitors were invited to meander through a traditional Italian market (hosted by Italia in Piazza) of over 15 market stalls boasting a wide variety of Italian foods including breads, pasta, pastries, cheese, oils and more! A selection of street food was also on offer.

A display of vintage Italian cars such as, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia was enjoyed by visitors thanks to Classic and Cabriolets Collection and Lancia Motor Club UK.

Councillor, Valarie Morgan said, "We are delighted the first of our Summer events on Strand Wharf was so well received, with a steady flow of visitors to the area throughout the day.”
