The “dIPLOMACY fESTIVAL” was born in 2010 from the awareness of the centrality of Rome in the international arena. In fact, a large international community operates and lives in the city which interacts daily with the citizens and local institutions, in constant interaction with the economic, organizational and cultural structure.

Rome is considered a focal point for diplomatic relations with its 139 Embassies accredited to the Italian Republic, 78 to the Holy See, 134 to FAO, 73 to San Marino. To this we must add the rich fabric of international organizations, universities, academies and foreign cultural institutes which consolidate the projection of Rome as the first international city in the world.

With a solid relational network behind it, the Diplomacy Festival reached its 11th edition in 2020, with the recognition of the Medal of the President of the Republic and thanks to the support and patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Representation in Italy of the Commission and the European Parliament, over 70 Embassies, 9 Universities and numerous scientific partners.
