Benvenuto Consul General Alessandro De Masi!

1 september 2021
Uni-Italia Center in India is happy to announce the arrival of charismatic Consul General of Italy in Mumbai, Mr. Alessandro De Masi.
We are proud to collaborate with him on our ventures to promote Study in Italy. The Consul General is an active proponent of modern education and exchange of ideas amongst students on an international platform. To prioritize a bright future and a positive outlook towards the educational status that is suffocated due to the present Covid-19 pandemic, he has taken active steps in promoting education and its opportunities in Italian universities.
As a matter of facts, Mr. Alessandro began his first activities as the Consul General of Italy in Mumbai with a Webinar on “Opportunities of Studies in Italy- Scholarship and Visas in Times of Covid19”: 
"Mumbai is the first Italian hub in India for issuance of Study Visa to Italy", he said: 75 % of Italian study visas in India are issued from the Consulate of Italy in Mumbai.
Moreover, many Indians students are opting for Italy for their higher education programs. This is proved by  the number of visas granted from the Consulate in Mumbai, increasing since 2016 almost 40% every year.
Why is this happening? As the Consul General Alessandro De Masi rightly states “Studying in Italy is not only an investment for your own future. It is an experience of the beauty and the culture that only Italy can offer”.
Recently, Consul General and the Director of Uni-Italia. Federica Giove, have visited the H.R college in Mumbai where he had a like-minded conversation with Principal Pooja Ramchandani and Prof. Chandani Bhattarjee, on strengthening ties with universities in Italy and forming a deep and structured collaboration.
With Uni-Italia, he also visited the VSF office in Mumbai with the purpose to make visa procedures smoother and faster and to prevent students from falling in trap of scam and fraudulent agents. Thus, creating awareness by bringing in picture the sensitive issue and securing loop -holes on both the ends.
Not only has he shown his interest in educational opportunities but also keenly supported the Uni-Italia’s motive of guiding students in making their right choices. He took actives measures by collaborating with us in launching initiatives with Italian universities for the upcoming year. His efforts towards a joint collaboration between Indian and Italian institutes of higher education is testimonial through his conversation with the Indian and Italian Academic Institutions, for an enhanced co-operation between the two nations in the field of academia.
  We are heartily welcome such a radiant spirit on board with us for an eventful journey ahead in future!
