We are thrilled to extend an exclusive invitation to join us for a truly unforgettable experience—a sunset picnic at the iconic Liljestrand House on Tantalus. As avid admirers of architecture and aficionados of fine dining, we welcome you to experience the timeless beauty of this Ossipoff architectural masterpiece. The Liljestrand  House embodies the values of exquisite architecture, natural beauty, and historic preservation that are dear to Italy. FOI is committed to fostering local endeavors toward community engagement, educational events, unique and memorable experiences.

We will embark on a captivating journey through history with an hour guided tour of the Liljestrand House, a cherished gem listed on both the Hawaii State and United States National Registers of Historic Places. Following the tour, we invite you to indulge in a delectable "aperitivo" paired with exquisite Italian wines, all while relishing the panoramic sunset vistas that only Tantalus and the Liljestrand House can offer.

Join us as we celebrate culture, history, and the beauty of Hawaii in the company of cherished friends and fellow admirers of architecture and fine Italian cuisine. We eagerly anticipate your presence at this memorable event.
