One was the flag-raising ceremony, which was attended by New York Mayor Eric Adams, Consul General Fabrizio Di Michele and numerous representatives of the Italian and Italian-American community. It was there first celebration of its kind in the presence of the mayor of New Yorkwhich took place in Bowling Green, a place made famous by the sculpture of the “charging bull” by the Italian artist Arturo di Modica.

“This square – said Consul Di Michele – well symbolizes the deep and ancient bond between the city of New York and Italy. Italians in the last century have physically built this city and contributed to its grandeur”.

“Even today – he added – new generations of fellow citizens, from the world of business, academia, medicine, research, science, art contribute to the extraordinary vitality of New York. We are grateful to Mayor Adams for wanting to participate to raise the Italian flag and bear witness to New York’s love for Italy and the Italians”.

The second part of the day was instead dedicated to a moment of sociality and aggregation for Italians who live and work in the Big Apple: it was organized a party on the terrace of Spring Placeoverlooking the Hudson River.

During the festivities, accompanied by Italian cuisine and drinks of the tricolor tradition, tenor Christopher Macchio sang the national anthem and gave an opera performance. The evening, made possible also thanks to the support of many leading “Made in Italy” brands, was embellished by the display of a Ferrari F1 and two Ducati motorcycles, including the winner of the 2022 Moto America championship. photos of the jewels of Italian engineering mechanics, inserted in an “urban” context, made the rounds of American social networks over the weekend.
