But locals and expats can still find their way to an authentic Italian experience in their own backyard with Vieni in Italia con Me – “Come to Italy with Me” – a new one-of-a-kind celebration of Italian culture and cuisine at Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya in partnership with Maserati, the luxury Italian automotive brand.
