After the restoration of Casa Litta – Palazzo Orsini at Teatro Marcello, completed between the end of 2019 and the whole of 2020 where the Embassy has its headquarters, thanks to the generous support of a group of Italian and foreign friends and sponsors, the Embassy itself has resumed its activities hosting an increasing number of events and directing the resulting contributions to the direct support of a number of charitable and assistance works.
Conceptually, and practically, this links the ownership of a historical residence of great value with the Order of Malta’s founding mission: to welcome and care for the sick and suffering.
Since the start of activities, after the conclusion of the restoration works, €110,000.00 has been donated to:
Educational project in favour of the University of Kisangani in the Rep. Dem. of Congo
