by Catherine Accardi

Mauro Battocchi's last day as San Francisco's beloved Consul General will be July 8, 2016. He has been Italy's Consul General in San Francisco since September, 2012. For the past four years, Battocchi has presided over countless events with a never-ending smile and seemingly boundless grace that will be sorely missed, not just in the city but throughout California, and beyond. The consulate's service area is vast and includes northern California counties, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Hawaii, Alaska, Utah, Washington, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

Battocchi grew up in Trentino, a region of northeastern Italy. Previously he had a stint in the private sector as vice president for government affairs at Enel. Within Italy's foreign service, he had led the desk for trade and investment promotion at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Rome, was the head of the economic section of the Italian Embassy in Tel-Aviv and served at the financial section of the Italian Embassy in Bonn, Germany. He graduated in economics from Bocconi University, Milan, and received a Master's degree in public policy at Princeton University.
