    Urgent: Italian Ambassador to the US visits the ICC

    We are delighted to announce that Italian Ambassador Claudio Bisogniero will visit the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/St. Paul Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014.

    Ambassador Bisogniero, accompanied by Italian Consul in Chicago, Adriano Monti and Vice-Consul, Marco Graziosi are traveling to Minneapolis to tour the Italian Fashion Exhibit currently showing at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The delegation has expressed interest in visiting the ICC and in thanking us for promoting the knowledge and appreciation of Italian culture in our area.

    We would like to invite you to be part of a small gathering we will host for the Ambassador and other distinguished guests. The event will take place on Dec. 2nd starting at 3:30 pm and ending at 4:30 pm at the ICC location in downtown Minneapolis. Light appetizers and beverages will be served. Business attire is requested. The meeting will be conducted in Italian.

    Our goal is to show our visitors the wonderful work we have done since our inception as well as what we hope to accomplish in the years ahead. During our meeting, there will be an opportunity to ask our visitors questions and show our passion for Italy, its language and culture.

    This visit represents a great honor for our organization and we wish to put our best foot forward.  While we understand the daytime is not ideal, we hope you will attend and meet the Italian officials and show your support for the ICC.  

    We kindly request that you RSVP by registering on the ICC website no later than Saturday, Nov. 29.

    Un sentito grazie,

    Vittorio Raimondi
