Celebrations of the 10th Anniversary of the Michelangelo’s David (replica) in Ningbo, prepared by Foreign Affairs Office of Ningbo Municipal Government, was held on 21, October 2016. The Deputy Mayor of Florence, Giovanni Bettarini, the deputy Mayor of Ningbo, Mr. Zhang Minhua, honorary citizen of Ningbo, Mr. Mario Razzanelli and Mr. Yu Danhua participated in the activity. The bronze statue of David is located in front of the Ningbo Grand Theater. It stands for the friendship between Ningbo and Florence and it has witnessed the economic trade and cultural exchanges between two cities in the past 10 years. Thanks for the great job carried out by Mr. Mario Razzanelli and Mr. Yu Danhua, David's statue can still be admired in Ningbo. Mario and Danhua have shown to all of us that when two parties sit down with a common objective, anything can be achieved. The government of Florence city, represented by Giovanni Bettarini, can be proud of this cooperation that will open new opportunities for deeper cooperation Geraci also attended as special representative of the Italian consulate in Shanghai. He mentioned that even when dealing with economic and financial issues, knowledge of each other culture is the key to the success of the business relationship. Knowing your partner’s culture will help you offer them the products that they want, that they appreciate. Florence is the world capital of fashion and Italian fashion hits well with Chinese consumers because Italian fashion design combines tradition with innovation, music to the ears of Chinese middle and upper class. "David is a bridge between Italy and China, a bridge that will stay here for the centuries to come", concluded Mario
