Ambassador Armando Varricchio visits Georgia (Athens, Atlanta, March, 22-25 2019).

Italian Ambassador to the US Armando Varricchio paid a visit to the State of Georgia. The mission began in Athens with the inauguration ceremony of the exhibition "Life, love and marriage chests in Renaissance Italy", organized by the Georgia Museum of Art in collaboration with the Stibbert Museum of Florence, and ended yesterday in the capital Atlanta.

In Atlanta, Ambassador Varricchio met with Governor Brian Kemp with whom he "underlined the importance of a continuous collaboration with Italy on the trade, investment, research, and innovation fronts, to create growth and work opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic".

Many Italian companies operate in Georgia and some of them have production facilities here and contribute to a trade relation worth more than 2 billion dollars.

In Atlanta, Ambassador Varricchio met also the leaders of the Georgia Institute of Technology, including Italian professors and researchers.

Finally, he visited the High Museum of Art, whose headquarter was designed by Renzo Piano, the Carter Center and the Presidential Museum and Library accompanied by the Vice President Phil Wise.
