After a successful 30 year career in the U.S. as an executive in the investment brokerage business, Mike Di Girolamo decided to pursue his passions of food, culture and everything Italian. A dual U.S. and Italian citizen, Mike’s an avowed foodie and world traveler. With his years of experience in corporate event and meeting planning, he has a keen ability to create memorable events with attention to all the most important details. Mike is realizing his dream of bringing Italian culture to others and splits his time between Rome and St. Petersburg, Florida.
