Kronprinsparret blev tidligere i dag modtaget af Italiens Præsident H.E. Sergio Mattarella og Laura Mattarella, der er præsidentens datter, i Præsidentpaladset Palazzo del Quirinale i Rom. På den måde indledte Deres Kongelige Højheder et erhvervsfremstød, der de næste dage vil fokusere på løsninger inden for sundhed, klimaforandringer, vand og energi, urbanisering og bæredygtig fødevareproduktion. Erhvervsfremstødet foregår i Italiens hovedstad Rom, hvor Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessen deltager i en række erhvervsaktiviteter som har til formål at styrke relationerne imellem Danmark og Italien og understøtte danske virksomheders position i Italien. 📸 Palazzo del Quirinale ©️

Kronprinsparret fik her til eftermiddag indblik i en meget betydningsfuld del af det antikke Roms vanddistribution, da Deres Kongelige Højheder besøgte Terme Di Caracalla i Rom. Termerne er blandt de bedst bevarede badeanstalter fra det antikke Rom. I romertiden var badeanstalten én af de største, der dagligt husede mellem 6.000 og 8.000 besøgende. Samtidig fungerede termerne som et socialt og kulturelt samlingspunkt, hvor romerne yndede at tilbringe flere timer hver dag for at pleje krop og sind. Besøget er en del af Kronprinsparrets program under det igangværende erhvervsfremstød i Italien, der blandt andet fokuserer på vand, energi og urbanisering. 📸 Mads Claus Rasmussen, Ritzau Scanpix ©
