Sir Nino Pernetti

Founder/Owner of Caffe Abbracci, Nino Pernetti, was bestowed the title of Cavaliere or Knight, as it translates to English, by the President of the Republic of Italy, Sergio Mattarella. Consul General of Italy Gloria Maria Bellelli, presented Pernetti with a certificate and special lapel pin before an audience of friends and dignitaries, at the residence of the Consul General of Italy. The honor is the first of six classes under the The Order of the Star of Italy which is granted to expatriates and foreign nationals who engage in the preservation and promotion of national prestige abroad, promoting friendly relations and co-operation with other countries and ties with Italy. To commemorate the day, Mayor of Miami-Dade County Carlos A. Gimenez, Chairman Jean Monestime and the Board of County Commissioners proclaimed December 14, 2016, “Nino Pernetti Day.”
