The Italian Embassy in Prague has been operating since 1924 as the Italian representation in the Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia before 1993). The Embassy's headquarters is Thun-Hohenstein Palace, a historical building located in the district called Malá Strana.

According to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of  April 18, 1961, the duties of the Embassy are:

• representing Italy in the Czech Republic;

• protecting the interests of Italy and of its citizens, within the limits permitted by international law;

• negotiating with the Government of the Czech Republic;

• inquiring, by every lawful means, about conditions and developments of events  in the country and reporting to the Italian State;

• promoting friendly relations and developing economic, cultural and scientific relations between Italy and the Czech Republic.

Moreover the Embassy carries out a series of activities aimed to support Italian companies; to promote Italy’s territory and attractions; and to promote greater mutual understanding, particularly through the spread of culture and the Italian language, in coordination with the Italian Cultural Institute.

Through its consular Chancellery, the Italian Embassy in Prague provides a range of consular services to Italian citizens and foreigners living in the Czech Republic.
