We met on Tuesday, October 30, at Air Force Military Command, for the Interclub with the friends of Precotto San Michele, Arco della Pace and Porta Venezia. The distinguished speaker was the lawyer Giulio Gallera, Councilor for Welfare Lombardy Region, who spoke about the topic: "Health in the Lombardy Region, current situation and prospects".
In 1999 Giorgia was miraculously saved, thanks to a liver transplant, after taking a small amount of ecstasy. From that day, she decided to turn her experience into a life lesson, informing and talking to young people about the risks involved in taking drugs.
For more than 10 years, she has carried out a preventive activity telling about herself in the schools, so that her mistake can avoid someone else's, to give the very young the right information that she has not had.
Giorgia is also a writer of books and from early October 2018 is sold in all bookstores her second book "Io non voglio smettere" published by Mondadori, a novel that speaks to young people, putting them in front of their fears and their dreams.
On March 2019 will be released the film inspired by her life. Giorgia asked to Rotary International Net's friends to help her by bringing to the cinemas more young as possible.
Giorgia we are all with you!
Yesterday evening, Dr. Andrea Senna, Vice-President of the Order of Physicians and Surgeons of Milan and President of the Board of Dentistry of Milan, was with us.
Dr. Senna told us about the main causes of the mouth's tumor, making us understand how this is a very widespread and not at all a rare evil.
Smoking and alcohol are among its primary catalysts and that is why we should limit ourselves with these two sins.
Last night, in the wonderful setting of Palazzo Visconti, there was the Interclub organized by our friends of Rotary Milan Monforte.
Great expectations and enthusiasm for the speaker of the evening: Letizia Moratti, former mayor of Milan and former Minister of Italian Education. Mrs. Moratti is now Chairman of UBI Banca.
Many topics were discussed during the meeting with Il Giorno's director, Sandro Neri, like: Expo2015, immigration, corporate walfare and the 2026 Olympics.
A delightful evening both for the company and for the excellent cuisine.
Last night an enthusiastic Monica Amari entertained guests with stories from her RFE, Rotary Friendship Exchange.
She and 5 other Rotarians, last August, left for the United States, specifically for Oregon.
They staid away for two weeks hosted by American Rotarian families.
For Monica and the other participants, the RFE experience was a time to learn about different cultures and build international friendships.
A great supporter of the RFE project is Simonetta Tiezzi, Governator incoming, who was present as special guest last night.
The head of RFE Italia, Andrea Noltes and Eleonora Sciarrone, in her tenth exchange, intervened in the evening telling us about upcoming trips in the program: Argentina, Mexico, Sweden and Finland.
