EMBASSY OF ITALY

The Embassy overlooks the intersection of Whitehaven Street and Massachusetts Avenue, one of the most prestigious areas of the city's northwest quadrant, on land that sweeps down into the verdant hardwood forests of Rock Creek Park. The building's clean; purist lines distinguish it from the neighborhood's neoclassical architecture.

The two entrances give way to a spacious, glass-domed atrium which also serves as an architectural seam between the two sections of the building. All public rooms - auditorium, conference room, cafeteria, meeting rooms and others - surround and open onto this sunlit circular reception area, where tradition blends with the contemporary to welcome all visitors with a uniquely Italian warmth and aesthetic sensibility.
