Men and women sharing a common heritage in a chosen profession.


Frank A. Sommario

NIABA Officers and Board Members from across the United States, Canada and Italy attended the Board of Directors’ meetings at Holland & Knight LLP (150 N Riverside Plaza, Suite 2700, Chicago, IL  60606) on June 9-10, 2023.  Thank you to Board Member Ken Jenero and Holland & Knight LLP for again hosting the board meetings and providing breakfast and lunch. 

On Thursday evening, June 8, 2023, the Board had an incredible dinner, which was held in a private room at Adalina (912 N. State Street, Chicago, IL  60610).  Many judges, past Presidents, and members of the Justinian Society of Lawyers, as well as current President Michael Pisano, were in attendance.   After dinner, the Board enjoyed remarks by Civil Rights Attorneys, Benjamin Crump and my law partner, Antonio M. Romanucci, who stopped in from Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) and Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) events.

    One of the afternoons we will visit the Bologna bar offices, located at the Appeal Court of Bologna building (historic site) and will meet with Bar President and officers and with local judges; another afternoon can be dedicated to an excursion to San Marino or Ferrara or Ravenna with dinner to follow.

    The CLEs will be held in the morning. Two will be held at the Foundation of Bologna Bar and one at Bologna University followed by an encounter with some professors and a visit to the University Buildings (dating back to the 16th century).
