“Meeting Italia”: a unique encounter with the grand and beautiful country of Italy. “Meeting Italia” is the creation of published author, Dick Novaria, retired director of Civil Space Systems Programs at Ball Aerospace.
Dick Novaria became impassioned by this remarkable encounter. He says, “It is my hope that it (this book) will deepen your understanding of this remarkable country and its people as living it did for me.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dick Novaria’s new book states that America is a land of immigrants and their descendants. Seldom, however, do Americans have an opportunity to know their ancestral country or its people other than through a superficial tourist-style visit.
In an unexpected, job-related happenstance, Dick became able to meet and get to know his own ancestral country, Italy, in a very deep, insightful way. In short, his job required repeated travel to Italy to participate in several space science programs. This required him to work directly with individuals in Italian industry, academic research, and government. He worked on project teams, negotiated contracts, and managed hardware development efforts.
During these times and later in visits with his wife, Dick came to know several families personally and experienced a wide range of Italian life. This varied from a romantic dinner on a Tuscan hillside to observing mass with Pope John Paul II and many other experiences in between.
This unusual encounter with Italy is the subject of this book. It is Dick’s hope that it will deepen the reader’s understanding of this remarkable country and its people as living it did for him.
