Sister city mayors
Sister city mayors Dale Alessandrini, left, of Iron Mountain, and Ugo Pesciarelli, of Sassoferrato, Italy, stand outside the Quirinal Palace in Rome, Italy. The mayors met during Alessandrini’s recent family trip to Rome. Alessandrini and his family were on a cruise that stopped in Rome for 10 hours. Pesciarelli made the three-hour drive to Rome to welcome the Alessandrinis to Italy and present the mayor with a citizenship metal and other tokens of appreciation. Pesciarelli is planning a trip to Iron Mountain for Italian Fest in 2019.
