Italy 40th Anniversary Dinner
Bailliage of Sanremo Riviera dei Fiori
Sanremo, October 30, 2018
International celebration of a significant anniversary

The Bailliage of Sanremo/Riviera dei Fiori celebrated the 40th anniversary of its foundation with a gala dinner in the city’s prestigious Hotel Royal.

The event was made special by the fact that the sumptuous courses were prepared by six chefs from the many restaurants on the Riviera which are associated with the Chaîne, namely
- Le Macine Del Confluente, Badalucco
- Il Vascello Fantasma, Laigueglia
- Ristorante Romolo Amarea, Bordighera
- Ristorante Apricale da Delio, Apricale
- Ristorante Bar San Giorgio, Cervo
- Ristorante La Conchiglia, Arma di Taggia

Each course was in fact prepared by one of the six participants.

The event, joyfully organised by Bailli Gabriella Berretta Ivaldo and Bailli Honoraire Massimo Ivaldo, was very well supported by local Bailliage members and their guests. A significant group from “across the border” in the Principality of Monaco led by Bailli Délégué Gérard Canarie also joined us.

Everyone appreciated the high quality of the dinner as well as the professionalism of the Hotel Royal’s impeccable service.

This convivial event was preceded by the presentation of Commandeur awards to members in acknowledgement of their respective 10, 20 or 30 years of membership. There was also a screening of a highly explanatory film of the ideals and aims of the Chaîne.

Unfortunately Bailli Délégué Roberto Zanghi was unable to be present, nevertheless the Bailliage was delighted to have the presence of Dr Giorgio Zentilomo, Bailli Délégué Honoraire, as Roberto’s representative. Giorgio recounted the history of the foundation of the Bailliage of Sanremo/Riviera dei Fiori, where he was living at the time he was Bailli Délégué. He then presided over the ceremony presenting the Commandeur awards.
