Never had an Italian Ambassador officially set foot in Oregon. The visit of Amb. Claudio Bisogniero on March 10-11, therefore, had a historical character. He came to meet with Governor Kate Brown and Portland Mayor Charlie Hales to illustrate the wide array of cooperation opportunities that Italy can offer to Oregon business, culture and society. He also came to see the vibrant Italian community in the Beaver State.

There are 1100 Oregon-based Italian citizens in our vital record registry, while the number of Americans of Italian descent is around 40,000. They have key positions in society and are well organized in several associations and cultural groups. They can be great allies in our efforts to bring Italy and Oregon together.
