Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of Italy to the UN

Dear Visitors,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Permanent Mission of Italy to the United Nations. This portal illustrates the contribution that Italy provides, day by day, to the activities of the United Nations, the world Organization committed to the maintenance of international peace and security, the protection of human rights and the promotion of a sustainable development.

The Italian Republic has subscribed to the principles of multilateralism, enshrined in our Constitution, which are at the core of the UN Charter.

Italy provides a concrete, effective support to the fulfillment of the United Nations’ mandates: we are the eighth contributor to the United Nations’ budget; first among Western States in the deployment of peacekeepers on the ground; host country of major UN agencies and institutions, namely FAO, IFAD, WFP, the UN System Staff College, the UN Logistics Base, and UNICRI.

This website will enable you to navigate on all devices, whether you are on your desktop, mobile phone or tablet, and to follow our everyday work on our social networks. I hope you will find it a clear and useful source of information on the activities of Italy at the United Nations and a tool for interaction with the Permanent Mission and its staff.

I invite you to make any suggestions or comments you may have for improving our website and make it a real window on the initiatives Italy is carrying out with resolve and commitment at the United Nations in support of dialogue, cooperation, of the spirit of solidarity and shared responsibility which are all essential to face the challenges and complexity of today’s world.

On behalf of myself and of the whole Italian Mission, happy surfing!


Ambassador Mariangela Zappia
Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations
