  • Description

    President Heuss arrived this morning by train from Bonn on his state visit to Italy.

    He is returning President' Gronchi's visit to West Germany, and may be said to be resuming acquaintance with a country which he knew well in the past, for he has already made about fifteen private visits to the country.

    The West German President, accompanied by Herr von Brentano , Foreign Minister, was met at Rome's Ostiense station by President Giovanni Gronchi, Signor Zoli, the Prime Minister, members of the Cabinet, and the presidents of both houses of Parliament.

    After reviewing a guard of honour Herr Heuss and Mr Gronchi boarded an open car and drove through the city streets before a large crowd to the Quirinal Palace.

    At the Piazza dei Fori Imperiali the cavalcade stopped a moment to receive the welcome from Major Tupini and the people of Rome.

    Later President Heuss visited is over Herr Heuss will tour southern Italy and Sicily, and before departing on Friday will pay homage at the Ardestine Cavez on the outskirts of Rome to the 335 Italians who were shot there by the Germans in March 1944.
