Welcome, Confindustria! Celebrating Their D.C. Office Ribbon Cutting Event at District Offices

District Offices has always been proud of our world-class tenants. Recently, that roster has expanded to include the General Confederation of Italian Industry, known widely as Confindustria, who now call our Farragut office their U.S. home.

Founded in 1910, Confindustria is an organization that functions as the Italian Employers’ Federation and National Chamber of Commerce. With members including the Federation of the Italian Associations of Mechanical and Engineering Industries, the Organization brings together more than 150,000 voluntary member companies, accounting for nearly 5,300,000 individuals. The association aims to foster Italy’s economic growth, at the same time, contribute to social growth and progress.

Helmed by Carlo Bonomi, Confindustria is a member of the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and is a founding member of several key organizations, including ISTUD (Istituto Studi Direzionali) and Assingegneria.

Confindustria’s residence at our Farragut location officially kicked off on June 21st with a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration attended by a number of dignitaries, including Italian Ambassador Mariangela Zappia and Vice President for Internationalization Barbara Beltrame Giacomello.
“After the opening of the Confindustria offices in Kyiv and Singapore, with the one in Washington DC, we strengthen our representation and penetration capacity in the United States, the first non-European destination market for national exports and the nerve center for the most important choices at a geoeconomic level,” said Carlo Bonomi. 

We couldn’t be more excited to have such a storied institution doing business from our offices. With such a central location in the financial heart of D.C. – blocks from the White House – we know that Confindustria will be perfectly positioned to fulfill their mission of fostering transatlantic relations and creating a bridge between Italian companies and the American market. 

Confindustria has also offered our great city a wonderful welcome gift – a loan of the first monographic exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s very rare Codex Atlanticus! These incredible drawings will be on view at the D.C. Public Library until August 20th, so be sure to seize the opportunity to see them!
