About Us

Welcome to the portal that celebrates the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Italy and the United States, under the high patronage of the President of the Italian Republic. An important symbolic anniversary to commemorate the long and lasting bond of friendship between our two countries and our people.

Italians and Americans share common history, traditions and values, and have always inspired each other in many areas, from culture to science, from economics to innovation.

By browsing the pages of this site, and through our social channels, you can take part in the initiatives promoted during the year by the Embassy, ​​the Consulates and the entire Italian Network in the USA. The events are divided into 8 sections, representative of the themes on which we want to focus in order to highlight bilateral relations: history and politics; economy and industry; art, music and cinema; language and literature; innovation and technology; science and aerospace.

In the “Guestbook” section, during the year we collect messages of Italian, American and Italian-American personalities who share their testimony on the importance of relations between Italy and the United States.

We are happy to celebrate with you the past, present and future of this great friendship between Italy and the United States!
