We are delighted to welcome Robert Nieri as our guest speaker at this very special Rise & Grind.
Robert is the author of The Lord of Milan, a story based on the life of Nottingham born Herbert Kilpin, founder of Italian football giant, AC Milan.
The Lord of Milan is a brand new publication that will launch at the San Siro Stadium on October 20th, two days before the 100th anniversary of Herbert Kilpin’s death.
