Italian desserts

Over Thanksgiving, my family is having a 50th anniversary party for my grandparents. We're doing an Italian menu, and I've volunteered to make a dessert.

Someone already has Tiramisu/chocolate covered, so I thought I'd do a fruit-based Italian dessert. The party is the day after Thanksgiving, so I don't want to do something too "Thanksgiving-y" like apple tart, since in my mind it's a bit too similar to apple pie.

What fruit-based Italian-inspired dessert would you make? Only restrictions are no cranberries, and it needs to be easy enough to make the day after Thanksgiving and serve ~12-15 people.
