Francesco Pensabene, Trade Commissioner of the Embassy of Italy and Coordinator for Italian Trade Commission Offices in India, said he is “very pleased for the official participation of Italy as a partner country” of the fashion gala organised by the Italian Trade Commission.
“I am very proud to present one of the extraordinary pillars of the ‘Made in Italy’ — Fashion in shoes and bags; that’s why it is not by chance that we called our participation in this context as follows ‘Fashion Appeals from Shoulders to Heels’,” added Pensabene.
