Links with Italy

20 Tachwedd 2007

The Italian Ambassador to Britain has delivered a talk at the University on Italy's foreign policy.

Dr Giancarlo Aragona, who has been the Italian Ambassador to the UK since 2004 and is a former ambassador to Russia, delivered the talk on ‘Italian Foreign Policy: the Future of Europe and Transatlantic Relations’.

The School of European Studies hosted Mr Aragona's visit. Head of School Professor Paul Furlong said: "Italian has been taught at Cardiff University since the 1950s and the School is at the cutting edge of research into Europe. It was a privilege to welcome the ambassador, and a further opportunity to reinforce the University’s links with Italy."

Dr Aragona has served Italy across the world, including Lagos, Vienna, Freiburg and a previous stint in London as First Counsel for three years in 1984. More recently he was Italy's Political Director at its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, from 2001 until his posting to London in 2004, and in 1994 was Chief of Cabinet to the Italian Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
