The Ambassador

Dear friends and readers,

I am glad to be among you as Ambassador of Italy to Israel, an extraordinary country where roads, faith and ideas come across.

A deep friendship, a close communality of values and aspirations, unite our two peoples and our two countries, lapped by the same sea.

In 2019 we celebrated 70 years of diplomatic relations. In these years we have built a solid partnership, with intense political and institutional relations. We cooperate in many fields, from culture to science and technology, from tourism to trade and energy. Friendship with Israel is an all-round friendship.

We will continue to work, all of us at the Embassy of Italy, to strengthen this friendship. We are committed to offering our contribution for a future of peace and prosperity and I am certain that in this regard I will be able to count on the support of the Italian community. To the latter and to all of you I extend my most cordial regards and I look forward to shaking hands with you.
