Consulate Headquarters


Consulate Headquarters

The main building of the Italian Consulate General in Jerusalem is located in Katamon, a residential neighborhood in the western part of the city, partially built during the British Mandate. At that time it was meant to host officers of the British army. The three-floor edifice was built at the beginning of the 40s and subsequently rented by the Italian Consulate. Michel Samacha is the architect who designed the villa according to the style of the period: straight and basic forms, a terraced roof, a round window on the upper corner of the facade, art-deco lamps at either side of the main entrance. The Consulate General also has another office in east Jerusalem, in the Sheikh Jarrah quarter, where most foreign Consulates are located. The building also hosts the offices of the Italian Development Cooperation Agency AICs.
