Consular mission in Ingham (North Queensland). Soon one to Alice Springs

The Consulate of Italy in Brisbane announced the positive conclusion of a consular mission at Ingham, on occasion of the Australian Italian Festival, from 1 August to 3 August.

During the mission, attended by the Italian Consul in Brisbane Salvatore Napolitano and his colleague Mrs. Marina Fioretti, 25 applications for passport issuance were completed and more than 50 people coming from several locations of Northern Queensland received assistance with regard to their visa requests, citizenship and other queries.

Consul Napolitano commented positively on the results of the mission and underlined that he found fertile ground to preserve and intensify the relations between Italy and the territories of Northern Queensland. Napolitano declared himself enthusiastic about the meetings he had with local authorities (Mayor of Ingham Jayo and Vice Mayor of Townsville Walker) and with the students of Italian of the Ingham State School. The Australian Italian Festival of Ingham reached this year its successful 25th edition and is widely regarded as one of the most popular events in Northern Queensland. Many Italians settled in Ingham, in particular from the first half of the twentieth century, and contributed to the development of sugar cane cultivation, which is still the main production in the area as of today.

Napolitano also announced an imminent mission in Alice Springs by the honorary Vice Consul of Italy to Darwin Carlo Randazzo.
