How Italian Human Connections (IHC) was born
IHC was born of my dream to create opportunities for facilitating meaningful Human Connections that enrich our shared humanity. I wish for IHC to be the platform to amplify all my activities around Human Connections that I have been cultivating for over 10 years. These activities are a result of the rich history of hospitality in my community. IHC will strive to make Human Connections possible through the development of relationships, such as friendship, brotherhood, support, and mutual cultural exchange.
Thanks to the support and encouragement of my American friends from San Francisco (USA), Todd Alleckson and Susan Pruess, I found the drive and the enthusiasm to create a network of collaborators ready to embrace my dream and make it true.
My personal thanks also go to my American friend Roy Heffner, always the first one who reads and checks my articles.
A few months ago I had the idea to create this blog. I did it with the intention of sharing my experiences of Human Connections all over the world, proving that there is so much happiness in every new friendship and human relationship, that it would be a shame to waste it.
Now through this new Association, I want to do much more. I want to help you to get to know my locality and give you access to many local contacts ready to be started and cultivated.
Please, keep visiting my blog to find more content coming soon.
