Strategist Urbani Truffles NY, “After the organizational stress of the Fancy Food days, this party was just what it took. A beautiful party where at one point, as we set sail towards the Statue of Liberty, I felt like I was shouting at the audience: Let it go! What happened was exciting, everyone was dancing, even the most unsuspecting, ministers, people from the entertainment world, all released their energy and even when it started to rain, the dances on the roof top of the yacht did not stop. A party we won’t forget. I thank all those present, all my collaborators who have given so much for the success of this event and last, but not in order of importance, the owners of the company, Olga and Giammarco Urbani, came specially from Italy to share with all of us this great event.”
