Our spring gathering was held on April 16th. It was a sold-out event entitled a “Celebration of the Dolomites”, dedicated to the renown Trentino mountain climber, Bruno Detassis (1910-2008). Click here for a video of Bruno Detassis climbing the Dolomites at the age of 82. Consul General Mauro Battocchi, who is also from Trentino, contributed with a testimonial. Detassis’ great niece, Paola Tonelli, coordinated this intriguing presentation.
A special Trentino menu was catered by Antonella della Muta. In addition, Roberto Engstrom of Prestige Wine Imports, the distributors of Mezzacorona wine in the US, donated several varietals from Trentino.
A special thank you goes out to the Leonardo da Vinci Society for organizing the event, and in particular to President Amelia Antonucci and Paola Tonelli.
Also, a special thank you to the Museo Italo- Americano for hosting the event, and in particular to the Museo’s Trentina staff member, Bianca Friundi.
