You have probably already had the opportunity to read in the newspapers or listen to the TV news of my last event in New York to present my work and my book to the entire city.
I was chosen by Learn Italy Communication USA, a leading cultural agency in the United States, as the first testimonial of the Italian Excellence in the World during an event organized at Urbani Truffle, the undisputed leader in the Italian truffle industry.
The event should have been presented by Francesco Semprini, La Stampa reporter in New York, but since he and his photographer were the victims of an unfortunate episode in Syria, where they were on a reportage mission (the photographer was injured in one eye, he was unharmed), his place was quickly taken by Valeria Robecco, journalist of Il Giornale and ANSA, as well as the newly appointed president of the UN reporters’ association.
During the event Valeria has asked me very interesting questions that have taken me to talk about my story, explain my method and tell more about my book. I also had the honor of receiving two questions from Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins, the renowned Mediaset correspondent in New York.
Also present at the event was the deputy secretary of the General Committee of Italians Abroad, Dr. Silvana Mangione, who also gave a small speech to congratulate with me.
The entire event was broadcasted for Italian Television by RAI Italia, soon I will add the link of the interview I released to them.
For now I’ll give you a preview of the full video (in Italian), soon I’ll add the English Captions and the entire transcript of the interview.
