The Governor of the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) announced today the appointment of the Hon. Angelo D’Ambra as UMMOA Ambassador to Italy. Although the announcement was made only today, the Ambassador to Italy’s office actually started on 24 April 2009, when he was issued his diplomatic ID card.
This is the UMMOA’s first diplomatic post ever.
The UMMOA and Italy enjoy a close and longstanding bilateral relationship. Italy enjoys de facto recognition from the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) as MPR Member No. 000301, and is thus already recognised in a de facto manner by both Independent Long Island (ILI) and the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA). The MPR also has at least five professional members either based in Italy, and/or of Italian ancestry.
The Hon. Angelo D’Ambra lives in Brusciano, Italy, a town in the province of Naples, and on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. Our Ambassador to Italy is not new to the micronational/Fifth World scene, since he started in other micronations, and also founded the former micronation of Utòpia. Despite being a short-lived project, Utòpia was so original that it became the 2005 Norton Award winner in the “New Micronation of the Year” category.
The Hon. Angelo D’Ambra has earned a BA in Political Science from the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II. He has also earned several certificates: the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL), Java and Commercial Graphics certificates, as well as certificates in Effective Communication, Occupational Health & Safety, and Commercial English.
Besides being the UMMOA’s Ambassador to Italy, D’Ambra is also an Independent Scholar, an Author, and a Webmaster.
D’Ambra is also the Admin of the UMMOA/AMOMU Facebook page, and Webmaster for the following websites:
The Hon. Angelo D’Ambra is a hard worker, and passionate about Fifth World culture. We believe he will prove to be an enormous asset for the UMMOA, and in more ways than one.
