The Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu will visit Italy at the end of the month. The announcement comes only a few weeks after the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi visited Jerusalem for the first time since he took office. During the visit the Italian PM invited Netanyahu to Italy.
According to Italian media, Netanyahu will start his trip by visiting the Universal Exhibition in Milan, where Israel is present with a pavilion located at the very center of the Expo site. The Israeli Prime Minister will then spend two days in Florence, Renzi’s native city, which he often chooses over Rome as the venue for State meetings.
For security reasons, the schedule of Netanyahu’s visit is being kept secret. However, it is not unlikely that the visit will also include seeing the city’s majestic synagogue.
“The fact that the Israeli Prime Minister will visit Florence is very exciting for us and for Italy,” commented the president of the local Jewish community Sara Cividalli.
