A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend the press conference for the Roberto Bolle And Friends Gala event at the Italian consulate. It was a memorable experience not only because it was my first press conference but I got to see how important the celebration of Italian culture is to the people in attendance.
In addition to the Consul General of Italy, Natalia Quintavalle who welcomed everyone to the press conference, Gabriella Scarpa, President of Acqua di Parma spoke about Italian Culture and the Gala event. She said "I am more than proud to support the Italian culture and particularly, Roberto Bolle, one of the worlds greatest dancers and the undisputed Ambassador of the highest artistic and cultural expression of our country."
Roberto Bolle said, "I am proud to be the art director of the 'Roberto Bolle and Friends Gala,' because I think it perfectly represents the culture and the beauty of the Italian people and of my country"

Not only was I nervous about my first time at a press conference I was also concerned about what I was going to wear. I decided to keep it simple and chic with shades of gray. I felt completely comfortable in a trouser, dress shirt and tie. At the press conference I wasn't over dressed nor under dressed which is just how I like it.
