On February 11th 2016, The Colombo club hosted a very warm and spirited reception for Marco Doria, The Mayor of Genoa Italy.  The Mayor was in town as part of an outreach tour to see and meet with the Italian community of The Oakland and San Francisco Bay Area.  There were about 100 people in attendance for his arrival.  Ed Ari, The President of the Colombo Club presented Maco with a special Colombo Club medallion and Marco reciprocated by presenting Ed with a medallion made from a coin that was used in and around the Genoa area as well as Italy at large during the  Roman  Empire.  Dinner and wine were made free to all in attendance. A good time was had by all.
