Italy Sister City Mayor visits high school

What could a small town, population 1,500, in northwestern Italy and a bustling city, population of nearly 40,000, in northern Texas have in common? In Italian, they are called “gemelaggio”s; in English, we simply call them Sister/Twin Cities. Despite their differences, Duncanville, Texas and Monasterolo di Savigliano, Italy are unified by their sister-city relationship.

In celebration of this partnership, Monasterolo’s mayor Marco Cavagglia visited Duncanville this past week. On Monday, he toured several of the educational facilities, including the high school. His tour was guided by former Duncanville mayor Glenn Repp, current Duncanville mayor David Green, and campus principal Carlos Meekins. His experience was supplemented with visits to the Career and Tech classrooms, a performance by the Chambers Choir and southern cuisine provided by Culinary Arts. Kameron Hamilton recorded the events and produced this small highlight video from the day.
