Edelman Rome’s view, by senior account executive Emidio Piccione

Edelman Rome acts as Italy’s public affairs and government relations office, thanks to a unique partnership with VERA-Relations and Strategy for the Responsible Company.

Multinationals are based in the center and south of Italy, and the United Nations Food and Agriculture agencies (FAO, WFP and IFAD) have their headquarters in Rome, the seat of the Italian government. This makes for a versatile mix with clients like Mercedes and Lottomatica blending in with pension funds, pharmaceutical corporations and state controlled companies in the energy and aerospace fields.

The public broadcaster RAI and other television, internet and telecommunications companies provide multiple networks to access public opinion in a country which often is described as a laboratory for new political and social trends in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Our Rome staff is called upon to teach at universities at the graduate level throughout the country, ranging from business schools to prestigious communications programs.

E-fact: Edelman’s new Rome office is located  across the bridge from St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican, on “The Street of the Old Banks” – as banks were an Italian (Florentine) invention.
