A strong relationship, that between the city of Naples and the United States, established as far back as 1796 with the establishment of the Consulate General of the United States of America in Naples, still very active representation in the area and one of the oldest American diplomatic offices in the world.

Last January, the historic 5-star luxury hotel "The Britannique" opened its doors to the U.S., affixing the AmCham Italy plaque in the presence of the U.S. Consul General, Mary Avery.

"Since my inauguration in Naples - said the Consul - I could immediately verify that the ties between the U.S. and Southern Italy are increasingly strong, thanks also to the important role of the American Chamber of Commerce in strengthening these relationships." Recalling then this difficult year, the Consul added: "In this period there has been the effort of American companies that have donated about 50 million dollars to Italian hospitals and institutions fighting Covid. Of that, about $5 million has come to Campania, particularly to Cotugno and Pascale hospitals. "A large part of the assistance provided by American companies to Italy - explained Avery - has come thanks to the fundamental role of coordination and support that AmCham Italy has played. These contributions are further proof of the incredible and historic friendship that binds the United States and Italy."

Since the late 1800s, artists, princes, politicians and adventurers have admired the Gulf of Naples from this magnificent hotel, already an AmCham member, which over the years has renewed its splendor, becoming a true Neapolitan institution and a point of reference for international tourism, particularly American. Some of the most illustrious guests include: Prince Umberto di Savoia, Queen Frederica of Greece, Arthur Conan Doyle, Virginia Woolf and George Bernard Shaw.
