    At New York's Italian restaurant Il Gattopardo, owner and restaurateur Gianfranco Sorrentino hosted a Members & Press Cocktail Reception for the non-profit organization Gruppo Italiano (GI), which promotes authentic Italian cuisine in the US. The night featured many guest speakers and the presentation of the GI Scholarship Program. Part of GI's mission, in fact, is to assist Italian students and professionals to come and work in the US, where they will learn how to tell their country’s culture through dining experiences. i-Italy by the way, is glad to announce its media partnership with GI, whose mission it shares in full.
  • John Mariani's book narrates the rise of Italian-American food culture and the emigrants who made it possible. It was a journey fueled by endurance, passion and triumph that will inspire a whole new appreciation for the foods we are so enamored by today.
