Dear Italians present in South Australia,

it is with great enthusiasm that I have welcomed the opportunity to play the role of Italian Consul in Adelaide. It just this spirit that I intend in the coming years working towards making the Consulate increasingly a point of reference for all Italians resident here and also for all people who love our country.

The Italian community in South Australia, highly integrated and structured, will be one of the priorities of this Consulate. The quality of consular services will be improved whilst cutting waiting times. However, the consular universe cannot stop at mere usability of services offered. Our work will be aimed at creating a Community of citizens for citizens at 360 degrees, developing and cultivating a sense of greater aggregation through initiatives that aim to solidify and cement a community feeling. The concept of Community in the most “Weberian sense” of the term (or word) must be experienced in regards of integration between individuals based on conditions of association between them. Much more can 'be done locally to exploit synergies and ideas offered by the successful combination of an Italian-Australian community that, in my opinion, still has much to offer to increase an even more rooted sense of identity. Therefore, great relevance will be given to cultural, scientific, commercial and gastronomic initiatives. Particular attention will be given to young Italians born in Australia or who have just transferred here, whose contribution is vital to consolidate the "Italian Factor", especially among younger generations.

The activity of the Consulate, finally, cannot avoid being directed also towards those whom, for various reasons, wish to get closer to our Country. For this reason meetings will be organized in universities, in schools and in any other useful forum in order to make Italy more known, in all its sectors and facets.
I extend therefore, an invitation to follow us on our website and on our twitter profile and not to hesitate to be proactive by contacting us at our institutional emails.

A friendly greeting to all,

Roberta Ronzitti
Consul of Italy in South Australia
