VERY INTERESTING.!!!!. IMO
This week the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See has begun its move to a new building – which shares the same campus as both the U.S. Embassy to Italy and the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. “We are looking forward to a larger, more modern facility that can provide a more functional space for our staff,” U.S. ambassador Ken Hackett said in an Aug. 11 statement announcing the move.
He said the United States’ relationship with the Holy See “is important and continues to grow as we work together to promote human rights, social justice and peace around the world,” adding that the new facility provides “a more robust workspace” to carry out their ongoing collaboration with the Vatican and with the Catholic humanitarian and academic communities in Rome. “We will have greater space for the future possibility of staff increases, and we will have a significant increase in space to host visitors for meetings and events.” Although the new building will be on the same property as the other two U.S. missions in Rome, it will have a separate space and entrance.
