Italy's U.S. ambassador was in downtown Hartford Tuesday to open the European nation's honorary consul office there.

Ambassador Armando Varrichio joined other U.S. and Italian dignitaries and Hartford officials for the opening of the office at 196 Trumbull St.

"The establishment of this formal office of the Italian government is recognition of the size, scope and importance of the Italian community in Connecticut." said State Consul General Quintino Cianfaglione.

The office will serve Italian nationals as well as promote Italian language and culture in Connecticut, officials said.
