  1. Solvang Air is an okay decoration with an alright animation (it does more than some planes in the game). It is possibly the biggest airplane in the game and the airport is the easiest and more obvious place I’d put it but I might eventually find somewhere for it to go since I stored the airport a while ago.

    Nana Sophie Mussolini’s Vineyard is a good prize since it is one of the two building prizes in the event and one of the three new buildings in the event. It is a decent size and has a really beautiful design to it. The animation isn’t too bad and I’m glad that there is at least a task there. I wish EA either included a new task for Nana Sophie Mussolini to go to the vineyard since her name is on it or moved some of her existing tasks such as her 4h visual one “Teach Milhouse Italian” (I’d love to see Nana chasing Milhouse at her vineyard) and her 12h indoor one “Search for Olive Branches” (it make more sense for this to be at her vineyard than at the Van Houten House since she’d have more luck finding them there). I haven’t done a design for it yet but I plan on using boardwalk fences and fruit trees in my design.

    Springfield’s Little Italy is another good prize since it is another building prize in the event. It’s great that it can have roads go through it, its a decent size and it also has a beautiful design to it. The animation is okay (I wish the lampposts light up as part of it) and I’m glad that there’s a task there for someone. I wish it was categorized as a shop or restaurant so that more characters could go there instead of just Moe and that Italian Milhouse had a task there. I plan to expand Springfield’s Little Italy with Luigi’s, the Businessman’s Social Club and any other items that might work in a Little Italy design.

    I like the vineyard, fits nicely in my agricultural/wild zone. It’s a pitty Nana Mussolini doesn’t have any task there. Since her two only animated tasks require other characters, you never see her if you use the employement office (which you likely do when your characters are count by hundreds).

  3. I really like the vineyard. Yes it’s on the bigger side but I like having different size buildings and houses in my Springfield.

  4. Solvang Air – after obtaining seven to eight different Airplanes in TSTO over the years? the last thing I wanted is one more (especially with no Character Tasks!) Maybe my Van Houten Event show off should be a photo of how many Crap Prizes – like this – that went right into Storage? 😂

    Nana Sophie Mussolini’s Vineyard – this! more Event Prizes like this! Nice looking Villa w/a Vineyard (don’t ask me why Nana Mussolini doesn’t have a Task here, I’m just glad Lisa Simpson does!) 😊

    Little Italy – thank you EA! ❤️ this Building style (❤️ designing with a Street going down the centre!) Now has a Character Task here, but there should have been a Character Task for Italian Millhouse, Luigi, Fat Tony (actually? Tasks for all the Mafia here would have been amusing!) I think I can actually bring some Decor from this event out of Storage (Milhouse’s Scooter, Gelato Stand) and place them nearby! 😀👍🏻

    Yay 12 🍩’s!

  5. Gonna be tough trying to fit these prizes in my town due to their size. The Vineyard and Little Italy are nice though. The plane not so much.

    • ❤️ the Buildings, yes they take up Real Estate … but if you have Event Prizes from Venice? they’ll go swell nearby! 🇮🇹🍝

  6. Anyone else not have Little Italy show up for them?

    • No 🤔 I got it ….

      But, Alissa always reminds us to complete each Task required besides obtaining the Event Currency for each Prize (if you did everything required, still but don’t have it in your Inventory? I’d get in touch with EA Help to see if they can solve the problem).
