For the best Italian cultural experience we had to go no further than Belgravia: to the Italian Cultural Institute. We paid £5 each to be serenaded by an Italian guitarist. We were welcomed at the door with a glass of deliciously cold Prosecco. The concert took place in a gracious, high ceiling room where there was an ongoing exhibition of contemporary Italian paintings. At the interval another glass of prosecco was forthcoming. At the end of the recital the audience were invited upstairs to a beautiful wood panelled room to partake in more drinks and canapes. The place hummed with both Italian and English voices and the warmth of an experience shared. The evening rounded off with everyone receiving a memento of the evening - a free CD of the music of the guitarist.
