The Italian Forum
The Challenge Property vision of bringing a little bit of the real Italy to the middle of ‘Little Italy’ in suburban Sydney that gave us the Piazza with its fountain, restaurants, exclusive boutiques and residential apartments that the public enjoys today. By not overlooking any detail, the Italian Forum makes you feel like you could actually be dining on the streets of Italy!
Located on 23 Norton Street, Leichhardt, the Italian Forum contains a galleried walkaway that takes you from Norton Street and magically transports you into Italy with touches of Tuscan architecture, colours of tan and burnt red and a striking space that opens before you.
To complete this sophisticated European setting, there is the Galleria Designer boutiques offering the cream of European and Australian fashion. Also on this level are colourful accessories and homeware stores-jewellery and hair and beauty specialists-and casual cafe.
These surround overlook the stunning outdoor piazza a generous space ringed by cafes and restaurants that provide a superb range to choose from, through cheerful trattoria style to fine Italian dinning.
