OSDIA marked its presence at the Vatican

On October 5, the Delegation attended the Papal Audience in the presence of His Eminence, Pope Francis. The Pope blessed OSDIA and family members who weren’t present. The group then headed for a tour of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. Moreover, they had the chance to visit other educational, historic and religious sites throughout Rome and reconnect with the fellow sisters and brothers with whom we share a common heritage.

This was an opportunity to strengthen the bonds of friendship between Italy and the United States, which is home to 26 million Americans of Italian descent. To that end, OSDIA honored new Rome-based members such as Ivan Zazzaroni, the Director of Corriere dello Sport.

Mr. Zazzaroni, who leads one of the major Italian sports daily newspapers, accepted the honorary membership with humility and pride as a token of appreciation for joining such an established organization such as OSDIA.
