Once more, the Italian company partners with the Australian Slam and manages the restaurant inside Melbourne Park
Until February 2nd, the focus of the world of tennis is on the 108th edition of the Australian Open. Taking place at Melbourne Park, the tournament run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the first Grand Slam of the year. And tennis enthusiasts that attend the event, as well as athletes, can enjoy the quality of Italian pasta in the Barilla restaurant.
