Social media tools like Twitter and Facebook are changing the way governments interact with each other, with their citizens, and with the public. They're also changing the way foreign policy is actuated to respond to new challenges.

Italy has embraced a new way of communicating with the public -- both at home and abroad -- and here in the United Stated we're looking forward to building an even stronger relation with Italian residents, the Italian American community, the American public, and all those interested in exploring more about Italy.

The Social Media Hub we have put in place is a window to everything Italian in the US. It is a way to open our doors and engaging in an open dialogue with all of you.
