Oscar Bettello

Il Ragazzo

Born in Treviso, Italy in 1987, he graduated in Statistics and Computer Science at Ca’ Foscari in Venice in 2010. After his first experience in Vancouver he felt the need to move on and try to start something new, where better than the City that never sleeps? After almost 4 fantastic years in NYC, he moved to Miami with his girlfriend Giulia to start their new journey by opening the US Headquarter of their own business.

What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I work (and live) side by side with my partner every day trying to build our own future, I’m lucky to do what I love with the person I love. Other than that I like sports in general, of course soccer (don’t forget I’m Italian) and tennis.

What made you leave Italy and chose NYC/Miami?

The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying, after my bachelor I just felt the need of trying something new, different from the small little world I used to know… Seeking to demonstrate my skills, challenging myself I ended up moving to NYC.

Please share your best memory in the City.

I have a lost of great moments in my heart, since I moved to the US, but lately, since I moved to Miami, I have discovered again the beauty of waking up by the light of the sun, not between tall grey walls that used to surround me in NYC.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

It’s where we have decide to open the new American’s headquarter. I love the energy and the feelings I get just walking through this neighborhood, one of the largest open-air street-art installations in the world. From warehouse and manufacturing district to Art District, we just love that.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I think that this project is a step toward helping our Country, especially the young generation, to keep alive their hope and those of all the Italians who, like us, do not stop to experience this moment so difficult for our country, but go ahead and try to restore the honor of the word “Italy”. I am honored to be considered part of this project.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the italian style/culture abroad?

I am too young to be considered an ambassador, but I hope that my experience will serve as an excuse to other people like me, to try and not fear the challenge of starting something new, the future starts today not tomorrow..
