President Obama speaks during the opening day of South by Southwest at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.
MILAN —Barack Obama is here. The former President of the United States landed in Milan around midday — local time — on Monday. The main reason of his visit is the third edition of the Seeds & Chips international food summit, during which Obama will speak to 3,500 people.
Welcomed like a rock star, Obama arrived wearing denim pants and a leather jacket, and headed to the central Park Hyatt hotel, according to media reports. This is the same lodging chosen by Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia during their visit in June 2015, for the Expo.
