The Italian-American Civic League and Salt Lake Italian Club will host Festa Italiana Salt Lake City in the downtown area Sept. 19-20. The festival, in its first year, will focus on Italian food and culture. Festa Italiana Salt Lake City is a non-profit Italian festival and "a portion of the proceeds will be donated this year to Catholic Community Services," said Nick Fuoco, festival director and Italian-American Civic League secretary.
