Author’s birthday party hosts a pre-publication presentation of “Gilda, Promise Me”

On March 10, 2018, there was a marvelous celebration of Cav, Gilda Battaglia Rorro Baldassari’s birthday at her residence in Hamilton, New Jersey. Friends, mentors, students, and “arguably the finest oenologist in USA” Vittorio Vettori, as the graceful host introduced him, had the opportunity to talk about Gilda, her achievements, her wonderful personality and, why not? her upcoming memoir, “Gilda, Promise Me.”

Vittorio Vettori offers his wonderful “Brindisi” to Gilda.

Tiziano Thomas Dossena, her editor and editorial director of Idea Press, her publisher, gave a brief presentation of the book, announcing its official publication by the end of March 2018. The celebration continued with marvelous music by Fred Proulx and plenty of food, Italian style! Present at the party, besides friends, family and many personalities of the Italian american world, we recognized the Chair of the NJ Italian American Heritage Commission, Robert DiBiase, Dr. Jill Simone, the author and lawyer Albert Stark, the renown oenologist Vittorio Vettori, the president of Mercer county Italian-American Festival association, Cav. John Scarpati, and the writer Frank A. Campione.
