I am so excited to share the news that one of my favorite singers/musicians of all time--Sting, and his wife, Trudie Styler, were appointed Goodwill Ambassadors at the Disposal of San Marino (my birthplace)! A resolution was signed by the government on November 23, 2020, after a meeting took place on October 10th, when Sting visited Mount Titano for the first time at the invitation of friends.
The couple took an oath and formally accepted the nomination in front of the Captains Regents, Gian Carlo Venturini and Marco Nicolini on April 24, 2021 at the Palazzo Pubblico (Public Palace) in San Marino. The official ceremony was followed by pranzo (a luncheon feast) at the famous restaurant Righi with the renowned Italian singer Zucchero, at which time the British musician and singer-songwriter announced that he would "tell the world how beautiful Mt. Titano is."
Sting, born Gordon Matthew Sumner, was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bassist for the rock band, The Police, from 1977 to 1984 before launching his solo career in 1985.
