Italian tour operators hosted by Cuban Ambassador
H.E. Jose Carlo Rodriguez Ruiz, Cuban Ambassador to the Italian Republic, hosted a delegation of Italian tour operators. This delegation represented Cuba operators and the country’s largest hotel chains. He hosted the function in his Roman residence at the peak of a roadshow. Meetings were scheduled in Salerno Foggia Pescara and Rome cities.
In the short welcome speech to a big audience of travel companies, the Ambassador highlighted the attractions of Cuba. He discussed the historical values that unite Cub with Italy also. This included the architecture of one of the most famous buildings projected by Italian architects: Vittorio Garatti and Roberto Gottardi. The Italian tour operators in attendance were reminded of the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the founding of Havana still happening. Month of November this can end with great pomp in the coming.
And the beat goes on
After all, the ambassador said, this event will be repeated in another 5 centuries!
“This season the formula &lsquo we’ve chosen to repeat;Cuba presents itself’ for many reasons,” said Madelén Gonzalez-Pardo Sanchez, Councilor of Tourism of the Embassy of Cuba in Italy in her speech. “Of most it really is an appreciated format first, effective and recognized, but most importantly it has allowed us to attain Italian cities normally beyond your main roadshow circuits.
“The delegation of the roadshow which will culminate at the TTG Travel Experience in Rimini represents an essential meeting point with the operators of the sector and the travel companies, to whom you want to provide a clear message, of optimism and confidence: Cuba will there be!”
Fiesta right time!
Both the Ambassador and the Councilor gave brief introductory speeches which converted into a “fiesta” with dances and songs. This was along with a tasting of Cuban culinary specialties and by drawing some trips provided by the Italian tour operators.
