Also attending was Sons of Italy Culture/Historical Commission liaison from the Dante Alighieri Society, Lino Rullo. Marjorie Cahn, Sons of Italy Benefit Insurance Treasurer and Culture/Histori- cal Commissioner, was well represented by her daughter Susannah Cahn, who is an expert on Italian food. All had an unforgettable time. Mina Pasciuto spotted Eataly's famous owner, TV celebrity chef Mario Batali, and immediately struck up a conversation with him in Italian. She called him "a genius;" they were quickly friends, and they had their picture taken together. Lino Rullo must have had VIP status, because he walked right up to the front of the long line for a slice of the award-winning Rossopomodoro pizza. Cynthia Pasciuto, who had to walt in line, said that the pizza and the fried fish were fantastic. Pare Donnaruma, Editor of the Post-Gazette and the Sons of Italy newspapers, tested the pasta at an earlier "Press Only" opening.
