On March 8th is Carnevale, one of the biggest parties of the year in the Catholic world! More commonly known as Mardi Gras in America, this event has great cultural importance for Catholics and those who live in Catholic countries, and the Venice Carnival is famed for the antics of those who participate, the costumes and masks, and the parties. The Italian Club of the University of Washington is hosting an event to promote Carnevale and prepare for the main event (and also celebrate!)

The import-savvy business is among 20 other companies in the United States to take part in the Made in Italy national promotion this week.
Along with free events, the storefront is packed with special Italian wares through May 22, Codd said. “We’re just celebrating Italy.”
