Giovanni Ferrero receives NIAF’s Special Achievement Award
Giovanni Ferrero was awarded the “National Italian American Foundation's Special Achievement Award in International Business.” The NIAF foundation, that works on a continental scale, is the main association representing the 24 million Italian-Americans who live in the States.
One of the institutional tasks of the association is to encourage the Italian American community to preserve and keep alive the rich heritage of their values and cultural traditions, and to ensure that Italian American citizens continue to be proud of the great contribution that Italians have made to the history and progress of the United States.
Every year, the Foundation bestows a number of recognitions on preeminent Italian and Italian American personalities who have distinguished themselves in their profession or their civic duties. This year, the award giving ceremony was held in Washington D.C., at NIAF’s 37th Anniversary Gala, on October 13. During the gala evening, the awards also went to another illustrious Italian name, Letizia Moratti, president of Friends of San Patrignano, and to Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, the time-honoured scientific academy in Rome.
