Background: With members of the Italian Senate and Chamber of Representatives, Mr. Gronchi the President of the Italian Republic waited at Ciampino Airport Rome Nov 27 to greet Reza Pahvlevi Shah of Iran on his official State Visit to Italy.
After reviewing a Guard of Honour drawn up at the Airport, the Shah drove to the Arch of Constantine to be greeted by the Mayor of Rome Mr. Ciocetti, on behalf of the city.
Whilst in Italy the Shah will take up residence at the Quirinal the Royal Palace.
The visit planned for last month was postponed due to the death of the Pope.
