1. 31 years of age;
2. I'm generally supportive of any productive addition to the business world, irrespective of gender or race. My wife is now a retired professor, so the bulk of her time is devoted to our daughter;
3. Somewhat - New Synagogue of Palm Beach;
4. I lived in Milan until the age of 12 years, although I often visit;
5. Yes, although not quite as much as I once did;
6. Anastasia Myskina, Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario, Stich, Noah, Edberg, Federer, Davydenko
7. I consider it an abomination, but view civil unions as a viable alternative;
8. Favorite Designer: Miuccia Prada (for shoes); Gucci and Christian Dior for other articles of clothing;
9. Seldom -- Seinfeld and The Golden Girls are my favorites;
10. Cru, Le Rivage

Re: In the Spotlight: Prima Donna

Five people dead or alive you'd like to meet and have dinner with? Why would they be your picks?

What are your hopes for next year?

1. No, although I wouldn't mind visiting Argentina;
2. It embodies the melodramatic and sardonic aspect of my personality;
3. Shift the global pendulum away from mercantilism instead toward liberalization of markets and intensify the process of globalization.

I would recommend one of three options (two, if you can handle it): journalism school (GRE), law school (LSAT) and business school (GMAT -- most business schools will only accept those with some level of private sector experience)

10. who would you want to run for president on the republican side in 2012?

1. I think Italy's reputation and wealth would be greatly enhanced by minimizing it to all countries north of Toscana (Toscana would be included as well);
2. Calcio is a little too barbaric for my taste;
3. Half-a-dozen or so;
4. I converted prior to marriage, and my Mother was happy to learn of my decision;
5. I grew up in Manhattan and Connecticut to white-collar parents, not in a working-class borough (where such a vulgar accent abounds);
6. No tangible impact, the company for which I work is owned by my in-laws;
7. Actually, my mentality is more American than Italian. Although I tend to lean European in musical and culinary preferences;
8. Indifferent, although I must say the man is beloved by academia (many of my professors are quite proud of the fact that he ascended to the chairmanship of the Fed from well, head of the economics department at Princeton);
9. In this order: China, United States, Russia, India + a dark horse (perhaps Brazil);
10. Mitt Romney

Addition to #2: There's a joke (la terronia comincia da Firenze in giu') -- which literally means, Terronia (southern Italy) starts in Florence.
