TORONTO, Aug. 30, 2022 /CNW/ – Peroni Nastro Azzurro, the world’s number one premium Italian beer brand, is proud to announce its partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). As the official beer sponsor of the Festival, this partnership is a testament to Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s commitment to supporting exceptional emerging talent, craftsmanship, and creativity while also bringing a taste of Italian passion and flair to Toronto.
