TORONTO — Peroni Nastro Azzurro has partnered with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), reinforcing its commitment to supporting emerging talent, craftsmanship and creativity while bringing Italian flair to Toronto.
Peroni Nastro Azzurro will bring two properties to TIFF — The House of Peroni Nastro Azzurro located in the heart of Festival Village and the private Red Carpet Suite at Roy Thompson Hall. The first location is where guests will enjoy an exclusive menu curated by chef David Rocco, paying tribute to the finest Italian cuisine.
