GREAT SUCCESS OF THE MEETING WITH BOB MORSE AT THE INSUBRIA UNIVERSITY

Yesterday, Tuesday, May 14, Bob Morse met university students and basketball fans in the auditorium of the Insubria University in Varese. Under the leadership of Professor Fabio Minazzi, President and Professor of the Decree Course in Communication Sciences, the event enjoyed a large turnout of both students and basketball fans, as well as people who were so lucky as to have seen the Philadelphia forward (fourth in the absolute ranking of top scorers, with 9,785 points scored in the A League) play live in the good old days when Varese shone both in Italy and in Europe.

Several VIP’s attended the meeting, including the mayor (and lawyers) Mr. Attilio Fontana, Toto Bulgheroni, Max Ferraiuolo, Matteo Jemoli, Marino Zanatta and Gianmarco Pozzecco.
