Like a sequined miniskirt on an older woman, you might think Montecasino is a little overdressed, but you cannot help but notice it.

Like a sequined miniskirt on an older woman, you might think Montecasino is a little overdressed, but you cannot help but notice it.

It was designed to replicate an old world Tuscan hilltop village. Some say that it brings the spirit of Tuscany to life with its artistic decor.

Montecasino is a post-modern parody of Italian pastoral, a paradise of paint techniques, performance venues and shopping opportunities that will play host to our proudly South African Bokke at Boktown - the official home of the Springbok Supporters Club.

On Saturday the Springboks will take on Argentina. Selected players will sign autographs between 9am and 10am on the Piazza.

At 11.30am the legendary 2007 World Cup game will be screened and at 3pm the South Africa v Argentina match can be viewed on the big screen.

The action gets hotter into the evening when the full squad returns at 8pm to pay tribute to Madiba. The tribute will be screened live on SuperSport.

There are plenty of shopping opportunities and restaurants and replica Italian skies complete with concrete pigeons after the Bok appearance, so come early. Entry into Boktown is R20 and includes a complimentary drink on a first-come-first-served basis.
