Italy World Chaîne Day
April 25, 2020
A great success throughout the country
" It has not been possible to mention every Bailliage officer and member who participated "

“The celebration of the World Chaîne Day 2020 met with great success throughout Italy”, so said Bailli Délégué Roberto Zanghi when reviewing the activities of his members.

Roberto, his wife Petra who is a Pair de la Chaîne and Dame de la Chaîne daughter Francesca certainly set the standard for Italy’s celebration of World Chaîne Day. See photo of them at lunch on their terrace with the lovely wisteria no doubt providing a heady scent.

Chancelier Bruno Peloi and his kind lady, Dame de la Chaîne Mariagrazia Bassan, posted their greetings. Dear Anna Accalai, Chargée de Missions, was also seen participating.

In wishing everyone Happy World Chaîne Day, Antonella Sotira, Bailli of Amphisya Calabria, shared details of her book - “Calabria at table in a hundred words” - of dishes, recipes and stories from Greek, Albanian and Jewish traditions and roots. Maître Rôtisseur Immacolata Giorgini of the same Bailliage sent greetings too.

In the Bailliage of Novarra, Vice-Chargé de Missions Paola Gervasoni spent the day with his family enjoying the fantastic gnocchi with Genoese pesto from Dame de la Chaîne Nini Airoldi. Marzio Carabelli, Vice-Chargé de Missions, and his wife Margherita joined in the Novarra best wishes to everyone, as did Chevalier Antonio D’Amico.

Maître Rôtisseur Marco Sacco of Ristorante Piccolo Lago at Verbania says “I like to have fun and entertaining is part of my job: it’s how I express myself, the restaurant is a way for me and my guests to share and take part in each other’s experience. It’s like a performance where I arrange the score; a spectacle of sights, sounds, smells and flavours.” Let’s hope that he - and all our Professional members - will be able to soon share the passion for their profession with their appreciative customers.

Other Baillis noted were Enrica Beatrice Amabilia (of Asolo-Monte Grappa) and Carlo Baglietto (of Genova e Golfo del Tigullio).

It has not been possible to mention every Bailliage officer and member who participated. Apologies therefore to all those not specifically named. Clearly World Chaîne Day in Italy was a great success throughout Italy, just like Bailli Délégué Roberto Zanghi said!
