Star of Merit for Labour – Awards within the Italian community
Three people in the Italian community were recognized with the Star of Merit for Labour earlier this spring in a beautiful ceremony officiated by the Consul General of Italy, Giuseppe Pastorelli. One of these individuals was Maria Pia Mauti, who received her award under the title of “Master of Work.”
This award is designed to recognize individuals who have displayed hard work, expertise and outstanding moral conduct. Mauti has exhibited each and every one of these attributes. She was able to have her sister and father at the ceremony with her to show their support and share in the excitement. With only 1,030 other recipients of this award in the world, being given this honour is particularly significant.
