The mayor Giovanni Macrì, a close friend of the entrepreneur Antonio Mamone, was present in the conference to which also participated Nicolantonio Cutuli, director of the Higher Institute of Tropea; Nicola Mastroianni, Unit Manager Randstad Italy; Vanessa Cariati, Calabrian artist from Cirò and Domenica Mamone, representing the Mamone family.
The journalist Vittoria Saccà, who coordinated the interventions, said that the Mamone family belongs to that category of people who have chosen to transform the pain of the loss of Antonio into something positive for the territory, especially for young people to which he was very attached.
Everyone considers that the scholarship, as it was organized, strongly influences students, encouraging them to study and also favouring their cultural growth to invest in their future while remaining in their homeland.
In particular, Mayor Macrì, imagining to tell his brotherly friend about the evolution of the city of Tropea during the four years of his mandate. He said that everything that had been planned, and of which Antonio was aware, has become reality. And he expressed his satisfaction for having met, in a local restaurant, a chef from the Tropea Hotel School. The director Cutuli, who took over the reins of the Institute in the 2017/18 school year, met Antonio in moments when the school was in need and the greatest help came from him as he made everything that was necessary available to the school. When the idea of the scholarship was presented to him, he immediately embraced it without hesitation. A scholarship that, to date, is institutionalized and pushes students to commit themselves more during their studies and has underlined the synergy that exists between school and territory.
The students’ awards ceremony will take place on July 25th. The event will be presented by journalists Karen Sarlo and Francesco Repice and will be enlivened by the music of the piano and sax of the Irmàns Duo.
