Press Office


The objective of the press office is to promote a truthful and accurate understanding of Italy in the United Kingdom and of the UK in Italy.

The press office of the Italian Embassy in London manages relations with the British media, the press offices of other London-based embassies, and the general British public.

Besides providing a constant review of British press and media coverage on issues relevant to Italy, the press office acts as an intermediary between British journalists and Italian institutions. We also work to establish and maintain contact with Italian journalists working for the foreign media, with the aim of updating them on the activities of this embassy, of other UK-based Italian bodies, and of the Italian government. Furthermore, the press office maintains close contact with Italian correspondents who are based in London.

Among its key activities, the press office organises interviews, press conferences and press points between Italian authorities and representatives of the British and Italian press during both institutional visits as well as on the occasion of recurrent events, such as the annual Venice Seminar.

The press office also manages the embassy’s social media profiles which provide live updates on the activities of the embassy and the Italian government, as well as details on events taking place in the Italian community in the United Kingdom.

Press accreditation
The Foreign Press Association (FPA) is the point of reference for foreign journalists who wish to be accredited for institutional press events in the United Kingdom.
