Mayor of Molfetta Honors Hoboken & Former Mayor Dave Roberts

In celebration of its long history and shared tradition with the City, Former Mayor David Roberts presented Antonio Azzolini, Mayor of Molfetta, Italy, with an Honorary Proclamation on behalf of Mayor Dawn Zimmer, City Clerk James Farina and the citizens of Hoboken. The honor was returned with the presentation of a commemorative plate to Roberts and his wife Anna Marie, who were honored guests in the Adriatic Coast city earlier this month. Anna Marie, whose parents hail from Molfetta, embodies just one of the many deep connections that the two cities share, including the annual Feast of Madonna dei Martiri, a common history as port cities and maritime communities, and a deeply rooted love of all things Italian.
