ENDED FEB 28, 2010: In 2006, Italy played home to the Winter Olympics. In a few weeks, the historic Roundhouse Community Centre will play home to the 2010 pavilion known as Casa Italia. The pavilion will be open to feature an expo of the best products Italy has to offer. You can expect to see some other fine Italian products on display. Casa Italia will be open daily to the public between Feb 8 - 28th from 11am until 6pm daily. The pavilion is only one block north of the LiveCity Yaletown.

Intesa Sanpaolo, a main sponsor of the pavilion, offers promotional gifts. So does Italy's Department of the Environment, LaGazzeta Dello Sport, Kinder Sport & UVA.
Most of the facility is reserved for VIP hospitality and not open to the general public.
