Treviso, Jenuary 29, 2020 – Treviso city has in heart NBA basketball and
wants to commemorate the great champion who spoke Italian – says Mario Pozza, the President of the Chamber
of Commerce of Treviso – Belluno|Dolomiti -. We hosted him as a great NBA legend in our Chamber of Commerce during the NBA Overtime
I phoned to Nicola
Serragiotto, the President of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce in Los
Angeles, who is born in Treviso and wanted to express the pain that Los Angeles
feels and how people remember the sportsman.
We commemorate together the champion and our thought goes to his family and to
the other people who lost their life in this tragic accident.
The Italy-America Chamber
of Commerce in Los Angeles – comments the President Nicola
Serragiotto – has experienced the
Kobe Bryant’s death with particular sadness, not only beacause he lived in Italy in childhood but also because he will remain a legend in Los Angeles.
A partner of the IACCW,
the Veronese Zeno Pisani, manager of many stars in Hollywood, remembers him as
a humble and helpful friend.
Kobe wasn’t only a sport
and cinema star for Zeno: he was also an important figure for the metropolitan city
where only the winners care.
If the whole world
cries the loss of the champion, Los Angeles cries the loss of one of us, ‘Angeleno’
by definition. Kobe will remain a great example, a family
man, a loyal sportsman and an entrepreneur.
Kobe was used to go to
mass at 7 o’clock in the morning, did everything to spend time with his family
without forgetting to be an entrepreneur: this way to live is similar to the
large and small Veneto entrepreneurs - Nicola Serragiotto recalls -. He was
generous in life and unfortunately other 7 guests died in his helicopter.
Our prayers go to all
of them and their families
