Festa Della Repubblica

The reception of National day of Italy was held in the Embassy of Italy. The art (Paradise in a Train Window) decorating the garden of the site was created by Nero Akamatsu , my schoolmate of Seijo. I am proud of Nero although there is no business relation at all. There were many representatives from Italian companies and I enjoyed the nice and delicious party with Italian wine and gelato and with some acquaintances. It was my regret that I had to leave earlier because I had to take a flight from Haneda to Fukuoka. I was asked to make a speech about Italian fashion in Fukuoka but the gathering is for ordinary people with non-fashion related business. The age range varies and some say that majority is male who are involved with finance business? What topic should I talk about?
