We are finally going back to normal. As the articles we published over the last weeks on INDiplomacy.it demonstrate, Italy has finally restarted. The G20 meetings held in cities and places that are a symbol of history, culture, and beauty; the Ambrosetti Forum on Lake Como, which brought together the Italian ruling class of and some international political leaders, including Libyan Prime Minister Dabaiba; Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio’s international tour to address the Afghan issues: all these events certainly marked a revival of Italian diplomacy.
Italy decided to defy doubts and uncertainty caused the pandemic and the difficulty in attracting international visitors linked to the many travel restrictions that still limit the movement of extra-EU citizens.
Besides the revival of this “international” Italy, INDiplomacy is also starting over. We just launched a newsletter that wants to summarize all the colors of Italian diplomacy, providing our subscribers with news, insights, and interviews on Italian institutional, economic, cultural diplomacy, carried out by women and men both in Italy and abroad.
Too often, when we talk about internationalization, Made in Italy and international cooperation, we give little or no visibility to the protagonists of a daily and challenging work. We forget about institutions and people who represent Italy around the world or help bringing Italy in the global spotlight.
Our goal is to offer to our readers a website in Italian, English and Arabic, where they can discovery the stories of these people and institutions, thanks to articles, videos, and a simple newsletter, useful to keep up to date with the many aspects of Italian diplomacy and the promotion of Italy in the world.
Our young team will be happy to welcome your suggestions, proposals, or criticisms: we want to grow together, both online and offline, also by organizing public initiatives and meetings, together with the representatives of the institutional, economic, and cultural scenes of Italy and the rest of the world.
Enjoy your reading and viva l’Italia!
