The Embassy of Italy in Addis Ababa would like to send its warmest congratulations to all its compatriots on the occasion of Italian National Day, 2 June 2021.
As part of the celebrations of the National Day, the 75th anniversary of which falls this year, on the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for the benefit of compatriots abroad, here is a link to the performance of the Italian National Anthem by the Cherubini Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Riccardo Muti.




On the occasion of the Italian National Day, we are pleased to share with our compatriots in Ethiopia, Djibouti and South Sudan the video entitled “Ripartiamo dal futuro” (Let’s start again from the future), the result of the collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Balich Worldwide Shows, a leading company in the field of videographic production.
The images are accompanied by music composed by Ennio Morricone for the films “Mission” and “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso”, performed by the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome: a tribute to the composer, almost a year after his passing , and to the evocative power of his music.
