Loto-Quebec presents Montreal's Italian Week

Montreal, August 1, 2007 - As presenting sponsor, Loto-Québec invites you to explore the culture of the country of the green, white and red flag, by participating in the many activities available during the 14th edition of Montreal's Italian Week, taking place from August 5 through August 12 in various neighbourhoods of our metropolis.

Many free shows will be presented on this occasion on the Loto - Québec stage in Little Italy, during the weekend of August 10 through 12. The public will be pleased to discover the newest clothing trends at the traditional fashion show, and the outdoor performance of the Cavalleria Rusticana opera promises music-lovers a thrilling ending to the festival.

Come discover the wealth of Italian culture by taking part in this event organized by the National Congress of Italian-Canadians. Last year more than 500, 000 Montrealers and visitors fell under the spell of la dolce vita. This year, come out again in force!

The Rendez-vous Loto-Québec banner underlines our support for events and festivals throughout Québec and aims to bring people together for the benefit of Québec society. Loto-Québec accomplishes this by contributing to and promoting a host of popular festivals throughout the year.
