What's up with WTI: Editorial # 109
- WTI Magazine #109 Nov 17, 2018
Ciao from Rome, welcome to the #109 magazine of We the Italians!
There are many events that have involved We the Italians in the last month.
We had the honor of attending to the Conference of Italian Consuls in the World, held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There we were able to see and greet the Consuls General in New York (Francesco Genuardi), Chicago (Giuseppe Finocchiaro), San Francisco (Lorenzo Ortona) and Los Angeles (Antonio Verde), and meet the new ones we had not yet had the pleasure of shaking hands with: Federica Sereni in Boston, Maria Manca in Detroit, Cristiano Musillo in Miami, Pier Forlano in Philadelphia and Federico Ciattaglia in Houston. We have offered all of them the collaboration of We the Italians in order to communicate and promote the activities of their Consulates. The Italian System in America is confirmed as being of absolute excellence, the Farnesina continues to send its best representatives to the United States.
In addition, as every year, we participated in the presentation of the Rapporto Italiani nel Mondo by Fondazione Migrantes, now in its thirteenth edition, this year dedicated entirely to the neo-mobility of young people and young adults. As always impeccable our friend Delfina Licata, who wonderfully coordinated the authors of the 504 pages of the report. Here you can see a video description of the report, with commentary in Italian.
Then there was the lecture given by me with the students from Ohio of Walsh University, at their campus of Castel Gandolfo, near Rome. A special thanks to the director of the Campus, Danilo Mori, who allowed us this beautiful morning dedicated to the Italian American community in a wonderful Italian campus.
Finally, last but not least, a few days ago, together with my precious friend Francesca Villanti, I met with the Italian Honorary Consul in Rhode Island Deborah Del Sesto and her business partner Debora Salvatore for a project that will involve Italian American friends from Rhode Island, who will help We the Italians, Fondazione Città d'Italia and Cultura Italiae to restore new artworks from Umbria damaged by the 2016 earthquake.
Once again, we encourage you to take a look at the 2017 Yearbook of We the Italians. It's selling very well, plenty of people interested in knowing the stories we told last year. So thanks, and please keep buying that, here!
That’s all for now. So stay tuned, fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride. The future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades!
