Event description

Description

Join the Stigler Center for a conversation on Italy and the future of transatlantic relations with His Excellency Armando Varricchio, Ambassador of Italy to the United States.


His Excellency Armando Varricchio presented his credentials as Ambassador of Italy to Washington on March 2, 2016. He had previously served as Head of the Economic, Trade and Scientific Affairs Section of the Embassy from 2002-2006. Prior to this, he held many high-ranking positions both within the Italian government and abroad. In particular, he specialized in European and transatlantic affairs during his years at the Italian Representation to the European Union and at the Commission. He previously served as Ambassador to Belgrade, and before that, as a young diplomat in Budapest during the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union. While Chief Diplomatic Advisor to the Presidents of the Council of Ministers Enrico Letta and Matteo Renzi, and Deputy Diplomatic Advisor to the President of the Republic, Giorgio Napolitano, he handled some of the most delicate international dossiers, with a particular focus on security issues. He has a specific expertise in the field of global issues, as he served as Personal Representative (“Sherpa”), at G7/8 and G20 summits, both at a national and a European level. Ambassador Varricchio graduated in International Relations from the University of Padua in 1985 (Summa con Laude), entered the Foreign Service in 1986, and was promoted to the rank of Ambassador in 2014. Prior to embarking on the diplomatic career, he worked in the private sector as Assistant to the Director of the Finance Section of the Marzotto textile group. Ambassador Varricchio has been bestowed with the highest Italian award, Knight of the Grand Cross, as well as with numerous honours from foreign countries.
