We attended the Italian National Day Ceremony in Ljubljana

On 4 June 2012, the Italian Embassy held a ceremony in Ljubljana marking the Italian National Day. The celebration also coincided with the opening of the exhibition "DOLOMITES – HERITAGE OF THE MANKIND” prepared by the German editorial board of National Geographic magazine.

The event was attended by several members of the Slovenian and Italian Armed Forces. The celebration was also marked by participation of the International Federation of Mountain Soldiers, including a big number of guests from the Slovenian Organisation of Mountain Soldiers, the Italian Alpini and the Secretary General of IFMS Brigadier Bojan Pograjc.

We were particularly pleased to welcome the speaker of honour, the legendary Tyrolean mountaineer Reinhold Messner, who joined the festivity at the invitation of the Italian Madam Ambassador to Slovenia H.E. Rossella Franchini Sherifs.
