Where the stars born - Miss Italia nel Mondo history

7. září 2009 v 10:57 | Martina A. |  Other international pageants
In 1991, the organizer of Miss Italy, Enzo Mirigliani, came up with an idea of a pageant where women with Italian roots from all over the world would participate. The first Miss Italia nel Mondo attracted 17 of them and the winner eventually came from South Africa. The pageant has been held annually ever since then, with about 50 women competing for this year´s crown (which was won by Moldova´s Diana Curmei).

Over the years, Miss Italia nel Mondo became one of the most popular and followed minor beauty events of the year. Each edition is filled with stunning delegates and usually concludes with the crowning of a trully deserving winner. It´s therefore no suprise that few future pageant super-stars went throught this pageant, some of them even managed to win...

Very special thanks to Greg of Belgium, who kindly provided some od the information and photos for this article !
