BARTOLO CICCARDINI

Ciao Italia Founded in 1982


A special tribute in Memoriam to our founder. Bartolo was born in Cerreto D'Esi in the Marche region of Italy. His life was dedicated to politics and writing and for many years a member of the Italian Parliament under several legislatures. In 1982 he created Ciao Italia an association geared toward the Italian restaurants throughout the world, as he often stated "the greatest assets for Italy's economy". A prolific journalist and philanthropist, he devoted his energy to many causes including the Italian Association of Christian Partisans. His vision and dedication will guide the Foundation toward new horizons.
