BELGRADE – A portrait of Queen Elena, the Italian sovereign born in Montenegro,
the elegance of the embassy and the passion for the Nerazzurri. This was the
backdrop in Belgrade, where a very sincere and special fan, Italian Ambassador
Armando Varricchio, invited Bedy Moratti for a visit. The Vicenza-born
diplomat, who boasts a long career in the field, experienced the great period
of the 1960s as a young Inter fan and his passion for the blue and black has never
wavered. He was there in Madrid, and manages to keep himself up to date on the
team despite his commitments. And when asked why he is a Nerazzurri supporter
he provided an interesting response.
"Through diplomacy I have become accustomed to an international context, and so
cheering for a team linked to internationality, both in their name and history,
is something natural."
Also present at the meeting were Ivana Pejovic, Consul General of the Republic
of Serbia, Andrea Arnaldo, the Italian Consul in Belgrade, and Maurizio Fabris,
a director on the Inter board.
