Ac Reggiana 1919 SpA President, Mike Piazza, has been one of the guests at the White House, last night, at the dinner that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, offered to the visiting Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi. President Obama defined Mr. Piazza as the impersonification of the success achieved by the Italian-American people living in the United States

«But most of all we see the spirit of Italy in the friendships between our people in so many proud Italian Americans. I suspect that many of you here tonight are thinking of your families, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents who left the old country, who toiled and sacrificed, and gave everything they had so that the next generation could succeed. Your presence here tonight shows that America’s a place where if you work hard, no matter what you look like, what your last name is, how many vowels you have in your name, you can make it if you try. Even if we are not Italian American, or Mets fans, we can celebrate that Mike Piazza is finally in the Baseball Hall of Fame»
