The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce promotes a broad range of imports from Italy since 1887. Director Comini explained to us how the institution carries out its goals and how it promotes the Made in Italy label in the United States. He also talked about the contingent economic crisis and the role Obama will have in solving it.
Barack Obama has mixed the relationship between a political message and the boundaries of the nation in which the message is sent. Has Obama created a global constituency? If so, he is now required to represent it.
Italian American intellectuals and Italians in Italy might have given great support to Barack Obama's historic Presidential triumph but Italian American voters, at least those in New York, can hardly expect much in the way of thanks from the new tenants of the White House.
In the US the defeated McCain shows respect towards the man chosen by the American people and calls to be united under Obama's presidency. Italy, on the other hand, witnesses continuous fights and insults among its political leaders.
If you haven't noticed I haven't been around much lately. I have a good reason. I ended up finding a vision, and word of Change. I jumped on the bandwagon for Barack Obama right after the Democrat Convention in full force, and now I can smile and hope I too, made a difference.
