On Tuesday, July 11, Consul General Philip Reeker welcomed newly elected Genoa Mayor Marco Bucci and former Mayor Marco Doria to a national day reception at Teatro Carlo Felice.

The U.S. Consular presence in Genoa was established in 1797.

The event included more than 500 people with Consular Agent Anna Maria Saiano as Master of Ceremonies.

Tenor Max Di Lullo sang the Italian national anthem, while American-Italian singer “Francess” sang the American national anthem; both were accompanied by the Carlo Felice Opera house musicians.
