The CIC Italian Delegation had the pleasure of holding its annual Assembly at the HIT (Hunting, Individual Protection, Target Sports) Show at the Fair of Vicenza (North-East Italy), thanks to the kind hospitality of the organizers of the Fair. The Italian Delegation chose this prestigious location on the invitation of the CIC member Roberto Ditri, founder of the annual event, in February.
A round table was also organized about communication and its links to hunting associations actions. The round table included the President of CIC, Bernard Lozé, the President of FACE, Michl Ebner, the Vice-President of the Intergroup “Biodiversity, Hunting, Countryside” at the European Parliament, Renata Briano, and the President of CNCN, Nicola Perrotti, and was moderated by the General Secretary of the Italian delegation, Massimo Marracci. After the greetings of the President of the Fair, Matteo Marzotto, the discussion surrounded the question of the role of hunters and their relationship with institutions at both local and international level.
The conference was concluded by the Head of the Italian Delegation, Giovanni Bana, who thanked all the speakers and the numerous participants. In the afternoon, after their annual Assembly, the members of the CIC Italian Delegation travelled to Bassano del Grappa, near Vicenza, to visit the extraordinary collection of the Italian member Renato Luca and the historic Museum of Hemingway and the Great War, ending with a wonderful game dinner offered by Mr. Luca in his beautiful residence.
