The last time Commercial Drive hosted Italian Day was back in 1982 (I was 12) when Italy. I’m not 100% sure why they stopped Italian Day but last Sunday it was back in full force. They closed of all of Commercial from Broadway right down to Venables Street and it was packed. Even thought it was cold and damp out the turn out was very impressive. This year the world cup is happening and Commercial will be the center stage for all the soccer games at the Italian coffee bars. Enjoy the photos.
