TURIN, Italy — A Vietnamese-style coffee shop will open soon in Turin, Italy. The Honorary Consular of Vietnam in Turin, Sandra Scagliotti, revealed the news at a recent Lunar New Year gathering in Turin, the capital city of Italy’s northern region of Piemonte.
Starting with an idea by a group of Vietnamese students in Turin in June 2018, the Honorary Consular has worked with several partners, including the Vietnamese student association in Turin, the Italy-Vietnam science-culture centre and the Italy-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce, to conduct necessary procedures for the swift opening of the Vietnamese cultural space.
To be located right inside the complex of the Vietnam Honorary Consular’s Office in Turin, the Caffe Viet will introduce to locals various coffee specialties of Vietnam.
It is expected to become a gathering for the Vietnamese community in the northern region of Italy and also Italians who love Vietnamese culture, offering Vietnamese food, music along with books and newspapers.
