Celebrating the Hon. Andrea Canepari
On June 29, we wished a fond “ciao” to Consul General Andrea Canepari, and celebrated his promotion to Ambassador. Ambassador Canepari and his family will be moving to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
Councilman Mark Squilla, Sheila Hess from the Mayor’s Office, former Governor Rendell, and many others attended the event to honor Ambassador Canepari and his remarkable impact on the region. During his time here, he established numerous cultural and economic exchange programs, such as Ciao Philadelphia, a partnership with the most prominent cultural institutions of the region and various components of the Italian American community. He also worked directly with Jefferson, playing a critical role in a promising new partnerships with Catholic University and Gemelli University Hospital in Italy.
