Grande appassionata di POLO,come ogni anno sono stata invitata,con mio marito, all'esclusivo ST.MORITZ POLO WORLD CUP ON SNOW che quest'anno celebrava il giubileo dei 30 anni e si e' svolto a fine gennaio-inizio febbraio sul lago ghiacciato della piu' famosa stazione sciistica invernale: St.Moritz.
Di concerto con il dr. Mattera,al quale la scorsa estate ho concesso un'intervista esclusiva per il suo editoriale"Royal Monaco,e che ha inoltre registrato e sviluppato il prestigioso marchio Monte Carlo Polo Club, ho accettato di condividere l'interesse comune per questo sport considerato "lo sport dei re" elaborando il reportage su questo magnifico evento.
