“Summer in Little Italy,” the annual summer-long weekend festival on the Mulberry Street Pedestrian Mall in Little Italy,  will kick-off the Labor Day Weekend on Saturday, September 4, at 2:30 PM with a series of free events, including a Signature Pizza Contest, Pizza Throwing & Cheese Making Demonstrations, and an outdoor concert by gifted tenor Jimmy Alleva.  All of the activities will take place in front of DaNico’s Restaurant, 164 Mulberry Street (between Grand and Broome Streets).

            The Signature Pizza Contest, to decide which Little Italy restaurant or café serves “the most outstanding Pizza,” will be judged by James Tramondo, star of the hit TV show “Who’s Wedding Is It Anyway?,” and Jodie and Diane Fanelli, the New York born identical twins who have achieved fame as celebrity spokesmodels.

            Bobby Alleva, owner of Little Italy’s popular Alleva Dairy near the corner of Mulberry and Grand Streets, will demonstrate the art of making fresh mozzarella cheese which will be served to members of the public with bread samples and Bertolli Olive Oil. Throughout the afternoon, field teams will be in Little Italy distributing free packets of Bertolli Olive Oil.

            Jimmy Alleva (no relation to Bobby), a handsome Italian-American tenor and recording artist with a voice and style similar to the distinguished voices of Andrea Bocelli and the late Mario Lanza, is one of the most popular concert artists performing on the east coast. He is a regular guest on the popular radio show “La Dolce Vita,” which broadcasts throughout the New England area every Sunday morning over WTCC 90,7FM in Springfield, MA. He is also featured regularly on the Uncle Floyd Show every Sunday morning on WRTN 93.5FM, broadcast out of New Rochelle, NY. He performs in concert throughout the tri-state area.

       James Tramondo, a successful event planner and host of the hit TV show “Who’s Wedding Is It Anyway?, began his career in the fashion industry and since taking a career change to event planning seven years ago, he has planned over 200 weddings, including destination nuptials throughout the United States and abroad. He has been featured in a wedding advice column in Metro Newspaper, and has been featured on Long Island News 12 and TV’s “Married Away.” 

Identical twins Jodie and Diane Fanelli, both graduates of St. John’s University, began modeling at age 15 and have since worked for a wide range of clients, including Donald Trump as spokes persons at his events for Trump Magazine and “Apprentice.” They have made appearances on such TV shows as “The View,” “The Today Show” and “Rachel Ray,” where they have modeled in multiple fashion segments. They have hosted such televised events as “The Bikini Bowling Team,” where they narrated and interviewed 20 beautiful girls as they traveled from Reno to Las Vegas for a celebrity bowling tournament. They have also been guests on various TV series, including “Gossip Girl.”  They have been hired as showroom models for some of today’s top bikini designers, and won First Place and the title of “The Most Beautiful Twins,” in “The Body Doubles Competition,” competing against more than 40 sets of twins from all over the East coast.

“Summer in Little Italy,” p[resented annually by the Little Italy Merchants Association” (LIMA), is sponsored by Bertolli Olive Oil,  “The Official Olive Oil of Little Italy,” Martini & Rossi, “The Official Wines of Little Italy,” Peroni Beer, “The Official Beer of Little Italy,” Pepsi Cola/Schweppes/7-Up, “The Official Soft Drinks of Little Italy,” and the Italian Tribune.

The special events at “Summer in Little Italy” are produced by Crown Jewel Events (
