* Italian food has a rich and incredible history. Share this in your feed.
* What region of Italy does your restaurant represent? Are there stories and facts which you can talk about?
* Highlight specialty dishes.
* Share some links about all the different grades of olive oil.
* Who doesn’t want to know more about Italian desserts?
* Go on YouTube and find some relative videos to post.
* Talk about how certain ingredients became known. How is ricotta cheese made?
* What about Italian songs or music?
* Spotlight some famous Italian chefs.
* Explain how all the different types of pasta come about.
