For many reasons I am partial to today's NBCNews special. My husband Roberto sharing his hopes for his city's future post COVID-19, his first cousin Giovanni (Nardin) Fracassi of Ristorante Da Ivo speaking honestly and coincidentally interviewed on the same piece, and my pre-production contribution all go to the heart. Thank you, Claudio Lavanga of NBC for the precise and empathetic narrativa and message. So well done. Click here to

So proud of Roberto for making himself available to NBC in these very hard times, and for the empathetic way NBC's Claudio Lavanga set the tone, and interviewed him. I am honored to have contributed to this piece; though because of the strange period we're all living, this time from home during pre-production.
