Lucio Caputo, one of the great pioneers of Italian wine in the USA

The wine and the made in Italy mourn one of its pioneers in the USA: Lucio Caputo, founder and president of the Italian Wine & Food Institute since 1984, passed away at the age of 84, after having been at the head of the Ice in New York, an office he opened in 1970. Caputo’s story is a fascinating one, escaping two attacks on the World Trade Center, in 1993 and in the more recent and well-known one of September 11, 2001. A careful observer of the international scene, he was one of the first and most active promoters of Italian wine in the United States, where, between 1974 and 1982, he launched one of the largest campaigns to promote Italian bottled wine on the other side of the Atlantic, and set up many activities, often in collaboration with another great as Pino Khail, founder of Civiltà del Bere.
