Italy: Networking event at the Ambassador’s residence

Dinner party

This activity is organised by the Embassy of Sweden in Italy and is open to all invited alumni. 

The local alumni networks are essential partners for the Swedish Institute, contributing to spreading the knowledge about Sweden abroad. The Embassy of Sweden is delighted to invite the Sweden Alumni Network in Italy to the Ambassador’s residence for an afternoon where we aim to put focus on the exchange and relations between Sweden and Italy.

In these times of uncertainty, the world is more than ever in need of collaboration and coexistence. The Ambassador of Sweden Jan Björklund will introduce the meeting with a speech about Sweden’s historical role as an alliance free nation, a topic of high relevance today. The Trade, Culture and Communication section at the Embassy of Sweden will also be participating, presenting what role the Embassy can play for the Swedish-Italian relations.

It has been three years since our last official meeting – we look forward with great anticipation to meet you!
