The Consul General

A special thanks to my predecessor, the Consul General Luigi Diodati and to all the staff of the Consulate for the effective collaboration shown to me the days ahead of my arrival in Japan.

My commitment and that of the whole Consulate General team will be aimed at consolidating and advancing the action of the Italian System in Osaka, in the Kansai region, as well as in the entire jurisdiction. Team spirit, dynamism and projection towards the future are the values which will inspire the action of the Consulate General.

Osaka, a center of undisputed economic importance, an urban agglomeration that constitutes one of the largest industrial and commercial complexes in the country and in the entire Far East, a cultural center of primary importance with 5 universities and numerous research institutes, a renowned technological hub, based in 2025 of the Universal Expo: these are all solid premises for strengthening bilateral collaboration in this region in the economic-commercial, cultural, scientific and technological sectors, in full synergy and in support of the all-round promotion action of the strategic partnership between Italy and Japan conducted by the Italian Embassy in Tokyo. The promotion of cultural activities and events, in agreement with the Italian Cultural Institute, will continue to be an important element of Italian action in this district

In this regard, a long-term systemic and strategic approach will be essential which, thanks to the contribution of the institutions, of the Italian community in constant growth in recent years, will help to strengthen Italy's positioning in an increasingly dynamic and competitive market. We work together with the awareness and pride that each of us represent our beloved country abroad. I am sure I can count on an Italian community that in recent years has grown at a steady pace and has been characterized by intellectual vivacity, recognized professionalism and a strong entrepreneurial sense. The site's goal is also to create networking opportunities, encourage the sharing of information and promote collaborations. I therefore invite you to provide contributions for analysis, ideas, and proposals. For my part, I assure you that I am committed to providing physical and virtual discussion platforms in order to foster the most profitable exchanges.

In the dynamic Japanese situation, this Consulate General will continue to ensure constant effectiveness and efficiency of consular services for compatriots and foreigners.

It is a great honor for me to serve my country in a stimulating context such as Japan. I am going to do it with great commitment and counting on the support of my compatriots and the Japanese friendly people.

Together for Italy in Japan!
