We have an impressive panel of guests this morning to discuss a very special event happening next Tuesday evening.

The Academy of Foreign Languages and Bridges to Italy host a mixer each month for Italian Professionals here in the South Bay.

Next week, this popular networking opportunity will take place at Dolce Vita Café and will feature a wine tasting event.

Mario Martinoli is a celebrity chef and renowned television and radio personality. He embarked on his culinary career with a modest neighborhood cooking school located in the Larchmont Village area of Los Angeles.

After 5 years of steady growth, he relocated and opened the much more ambitious, “Mario’s Cooking for Friends,” the fondly remembered Beverly Boulevard Italian restaurant, café, deli and gathering spot in Hollywood.

Daiana Baldanzi is the Director and Founding Partner of the Academy of Foreign Languages. In addition to her native Italian, Daiana is fluent in English, French and Spanish.

Bianca Dellepiane is a native of Genoa, Italy and President of Bridges to Italy, a California non-profit business association formed in 2007, that aims to advance business networking opportunities, tech transfer and investments between Italy and the United States.

Cosimo Puzzilli is the founder and president of Pizzulli Associates Inc, a full-service interior architecture firm with offices in Santa Monica and Las Vegas. He is an internationally known designer, fine artist and winemaker.

In 2003, he planted Sangiovese vines in a half-acre hillside vineyard located on the grounds of his Pacific Palisades home.
