Friday 28th of September 2018 the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria, represented by the President Marco Montecchi and the Secretary General Rosa Cusmano, was invited to the Residence of the Ambassador of Italy to Sofia Stefano Baldi for the ceremony of conferring the Grand Official honor of the Order Stella d’Italia to the Hon. Kristan Vigenin, President of the Parliamentary Group Bulgaria-Italy.
The Ambassador, after thanking also the Vice President of the Parliamentary Group and the friends of the Italian System present, declared: “This honour, established by the President of the Republic on the proposal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is given to those who have distinguished themselves for the promotion of relations between two countries and there are a few people, in addition to the Hon. Vigevin, which deserved this decoration. The Hon. has always shown a great love for Italy, but also has a particular sensitivity towards our country. I think the honours have a profound meaning, beyond the symbols that characterize them: they are not a point of arrival, but a starting point “.
At the end of the thanks by the Hon. Vigenin, who also congratulated Amb. Baldi for the excellent work he carried out for the continuous improvement of relations between Italy and Bulgaria, the ceremony ended with a Wine of Honour.
The videos of the ceremony are available on the official YouTube channel of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria.
