This past weekend, I had the good fortune to participate in the International Forum on Made in Italy held in Monte Carlo (I know, I know – it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!)
The debate was at times heated, as it should be – we’re talking about the economy, the excellence of Italy’s products, world markets – in short, Italy’s future!
Vice Minister for Economic Development, Carlo Calenda speaks at the Grimaldi Forum
Playing on the word ‘excellence/excellency’ and the possessive in Italian that can be ‘his’, ‘her’, or ‘its’, the Forum’s title was “Your Excellency, Italy” or “Its Excellence, Italy!” Thanks to the good work of Italy’s Ambassador to Monaco, Antonio Morabito, and his team.
True to Italian style, the event was excellent both in contents and form! If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the program: Made in Italy Forum Program
Our envoy, Suzanne Branciforte, was present, on a special ‘foreign’ mission to Monte Carlo!
