In true SOBEWFF® fashion, we’re putting a brand new spin on one of our most popular events! For this walkaround tasting in Miami’s Design District, we’ve enlisted Marra Forni – the brand responsible for producing the world’s most authentic handcrafted brick ovens – to help us turn up the volume on all things Italian! Join chef, author, restaurateur, and Food Network superstar Giada De Laurentiis for this wood-fired feast that’s anything BUT a pizza party! Sure, there will be pizza but that’s just the beginning. We’re rounding up a dozen all-star chefs, all of whom can’t wait to serve you all of their Italian favorites – everything from cheesy baked pastas to decadent dishes cleverly reimagined for brick oven cooking. Complete with exceptional wines and Italian-inspired cocktails, this stylish Italian soirée is your sure-fire way to enjoy the Festival weekend!

Experience the culture and flavors of Miami's premier neighborhood and shopping destination during the Miami Design District event series, taking place exclusively during Festival weekend. The series will be anchored in the iconic Jungle Plaza and feature events that celebrate the District’s innovative fashion, architecture, design and world-class dining.
