Dear Reader,

thank you for your interest in Italy and thank you for visiting the website of our Embassy. Barukhot Habaot and Barukhim Habaim!

I am honored to represent Italy in Israel, for the deep bond that unites Rome and Jerusalem, our two peoples and our two countries; a bond made of distant and parallel roots in the history and affinity of our two companies.

It is an alchemy that so often makes Italians and Israelis find together in the way of understanding life, in shared passions, in mutual admiration for the beauties that our two countries offer.

In 2019 we celebrate 70 years of diplomatic relations. In this period of friendship we have been able to create a strategic partnership based on intense political and institutional relationships and on robust collaboration in numerous fields, in particular the scientific, cultural and industrial manufacturing and technological innovation fields.

During my mandate, together with my collaborators and the whole Italian System, we commit ourselves to work with constancy and passion so that this partnership becomes stronger and richer, exploiting all the existing potential, above all by putting ourselves at the service of the cultural, scientific and business community to make the most of the complementarities of our ecosystems.

In this challenge, I am sure that we will be able to count on the help of the community of Italian origin, to which I address my most cordial greetings.

Thanks also to you, the historical relationship between our peoples is more alive than ever, Italy is known and loved, "Made in Italy" is appreciated and sought after and our relations will always be better.

On the pages of our site you will find a lot of useful information about Italy and the services provided by the Embassy. Do not hesitate to contact us for any need or further information. To learn more about our activities, I also invite you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Happy surfing, thank you for your interest in Italy and long live the friendship between our countries!

Gianluigi Benedetti

Ambassador of Italy to the State of Israel
