Dear Mrs. Sims,

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to you for the warm welcome with which my spouse Laura Denise and I were received at the reception held on November 29th together with the Italian and the Italian-American communities of Houston.

The visit of your Cultural Center allowed me to become acquainted with the multiple activities of the Italian Cultural and Community Center, an institute that carries out a greatly appreciated work in the promotion of Italian language and culture even amongst the younger generations. The promotion of Italian is a priority for our mission in the United States and it is important to know that we can count on the contribution and the enthusiasm of organizations such as this one over which you preside.

Likewise worthy of praise is the ability of the ICCC to dialogue and collaborate with the diverse components of which the Italian presence in Houston is composed beginning with the Consulate General of Italy.

I would particularly like to express my appreciation for the dynamism and organizational skills demonstrated by the Director of Program Development Dr. Tiziana Triolo to whom I ask you to extend my greetings.

It is my pleasure on this occasion to extend our most cordial greetings and wishes for a happy holiday to you and the board of directors, to the teachers and to all the staff at the ICCC.


Claudio Bisogniero
