Mood of His High Excellence's speech – given, on October 11 th , in occasion of his first official visit at the Italian Cultural Institute in L.A. - was an almost palpable optimism, that resurfaced numerous times throughout the Ambassador's inspiring delivery.

He briefly referred to his meeting with the Mayor Eric Garcetti, as well as the dinner at the Getty Museum, and his visit at UCLA's Department of Italian Studies, where he also met with the university's Chancellor, Gene Arcetri and Other Traces of Galileo's Life in Florence Pienza, a Renaissance Pope's Utopian City PG. 14 PG. 15 PG. 23 PG. 4 L'EDITORIALE L'Italo Americano Armando Varricchio, Ambassador of Italy to the US, speaking at the IIC.
