Italy's President Giorgio Napolitano and his wife Clio are to conduct a one-day working visit to Slovakia on Friday, April 15, when they are scheduled to meet Slovakia's top three constitutional representatives: President Ivan Gašparovič, Speaker of Parliament Richard Sulík and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, the TASR newswire reported, citing Elena Bianchi from the Slovak President's Office.

Italy's President Giorgio Napolitano and his wife Clio are to conduct a one-day working visit to Slovakia on Friday, April 15, when they are scheduled to meet Slovakia's top three constitutional representatives: President Ivan Gašparovič, Speaker of Parliament Richard Sulík and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, the TASR newswire reported, citing Elena Bianchi from the Slovak President's Office.

The Italian presidential couple is also set to attend a preview of Paolo Veronese's Portrait of a Man at the Mirbach Palace, part of the Bratislava City Gallery. The painting is on loan from the Palatina Gallery in Florence. The two presidents met previously during an official visit by Gašparovič to Italy in 2007 and later the same year at a summit of central European presidents in Brno, Czech Republic.

Napolitano's upcoming visit takes place in the year of the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification, and provides scope for confirming the traditionally good relations between Bratislava and Rome in bilateral, European and transatlantic themes, said Bianchi.
