Italian Embassy, Canberra

The Embassy of Italy is located at the heart of Canberra’s political life, situated close to several Australian Federal Departments, the Prime Minister’s Lodge and a vast network of Embassies. The building, which is the home of the Ambassador and the operative departments, was designed by the Italian architect Enrico Taglietti.

Mr Taglietti migrated to Australia in the ‘50s and has been well known during his career for the use of cement, his distinctive mark chosen in order to create stunning forms and spaces, that never lost the sculptural richness inherited from Italian architecture. The Embassy of Italy is in fact made of cement, which is combined in its interior with wooden panels, giving the structure a warm and dramatically dynamic aesthetic.
