    (ANSA) – GENOA, 17 JUN – Genoa, home to 54 general and honorary consulates, second in number in Italy only to Milan, will host “Genoa in the world, the world in Genoa”, the first organized networking, culture and entertainment event by the Consular Corps of Genoa and Liguria with the Municipality of Genoa and the Chamber of Commerce and other partners. The event, which will take place on Tuesday 21st at the Palazzo della Borsa, with the patronage of the Region, aims to make known the function and role of the Consular Corps.

    “It will be a new opportunity for the city to be at the center of national and European interest – says Mayor Marco Bucci – It is no coincidence that right here there are vast representatives from all countries of the world, but it is not just the trace of our history, these offices are there because they are needed, we have ship crews, tourists, companies, immigrant communities “. There will be the presentation of the commercial desks of the individual consulates and B2B meetings with 19 countries both in presence and on a virtual platform coordinated by Confindustria. The economic sectors of the meetings are: ports, transport and logistics, hi-tech, agri-food and tourism.

    “This event – adds the Councilor for Culture of the Region Ilaria Cavo – is the confirmation of the centrality of Genoa and Liguria as the gateway to Europe from the Mediterranean, with a strong international vocation”.

    The event will be enriched by an exhibition of artistic and ethnic objects representative of the culture of the countries present and at the end of the day there will be a show at the Carlo Felice Theater with music, voices, songs and dances by young artists from 14 countries, representative of the cultural variety of the Consular Corps of Genoa. “All this to tell the Genoese that we are not the only ones who can circulate on the yellow stripes – jokes Augusto Cosulich, honorary consul of Malta, elected dean in October 2021 – I like to use the expression that the Consular Corps of Genoa is like a toolbox available to open, deepen and maintain economic, commercial and cultural relations with the countries represented in it and which find in Genoa and Liguria a hospitable community with an international vocation on which to capitalize “.
