Institutional Protocol and Etiquette

Academy is a project that stems from collaboration with the Protocol Academy in Rome, providing courses and seminars to assist private organisations, associations, businesses and public administration in managing correct interaction with official institutions. In a globalised world, experience and respect for other cultures and customs and observing rules of protocol are crucial in adding value to your corporate image. This initiative has already been adopted by various public establishments, including Politecnico di Milano and l’Università di Trento.
