Illustration for Epcot's Tutto Italia Ristorante

Here's a great rendering of Epcot's Italy showcase. If you look closely, it seems the much talked about pizzeria has been added. So, here the pizzeria of Tutto Italia Ristorante finally makes its first appearance. Or does it?

Actually, this beautiful little piece is from 1982! Right inside of the souvenir guide designed for pavilion sponsors is the same full color rendering of the Italian plaza shining in the Florida sun. What a delightful dining addition this will be! Unfortunately, it also closes off any potential for an attraction here. That is, unless the Imagineers have more magic up their sleeves.
