ittonaIn August the Trentino Club of Southern California hosted the biennial ITTONA (International Tyrolean Trentino Organization of North America) convention aboard a cruise from LA to Ensenada, Mexico. It included a tour in Baja California of the prestigious Cetto Winery, founded in 1928 by Angelo Cetto from Levico Terme in the Valsugana. Francesco Bocchetti, Vice Director of the Trentino nel Mondo Association, gave a captivating presentation highlighting the history of the Association and the role it has played in supporting the Trentino diaspora.
The US has 21 Trentino clubs and Canada 5, and there were representatives from several of these clubs in attendance. A big thank you goes out to the Southern California Club and to ITTONA secretary Anna Vann who worked tirelessly to put on this event. Grazie Anna!!
