2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of Québec's institutional presence in Italy. Premier Jean Lesage officially opened the Québec Trade Branch in Milan in 1965, marking the beginning of ongoing institutional relations between the Québec and Italian governments. These relations were formalized in 1982 with the transfer of Québec's main office in Italy to Rome. At the same time, Québec began to increase its initiatives, particularly with respect to institutional affairs, public affairs and culture.
