Tourism industry leaders from all over the world are expected to attend the ceremony and receive the Signum Virtutis seal of excellence. The event will also provide industry executives with the opportunity to network with a number of VIPs including Prince Massimiliano della Torre e Tasso; Princess Costanza della Torre e Tasso and Nathalie Princess of Hohenzollern.
