Consul General of Italy in Osaka Marco Prencipe visited the first edition of the Awaji Italian Fair organized by Pasona, a leading human resources company. The event proved to be a great success with a significant response from the public who were able to attend numerous cultural events (music, cinema, ballet). Also present were exponents of Italian firms in the handicraft sector who enhanced Italian excellence in their field. The success achieved by this event highlighted in front of the Japanese public the traditional aspects of Italian culture. An excellent premise for the consolidation of bilateral cultural relations between Italy and Japan on Awaji Island.
