Central residence in Rome

The Swedish legation in Rome is Sweden's oldest mission. It was back in the 15th century that a Swede was dispatched to protect Swedish interests at the Roman Curia. Today the Embassy of Sweden is situated at Piazza Rio de Janeiro 3, a short distance from the Ambassador's residence. In Rome, the National Property Board Sweden (SFV) manages the Embassy, the Ambassador's residence and the Swedish Institute.

Renovations

The Ambassador's residence is centrally located at Via di Villa Patrizi 5. The property, measuring 1,500 m2, sits in a well-maintained, leafy garden surrounded by high walls and imposing gates. The Swedish State acquired the building on 18 April 1922. On its purchase, architect Ragnar Hjort was commissioned to produce designs for a refit, but his plans were never implemented.

The building has been renovated and redeveloped several times, gaining a garage, a new entrance and a greenhouse over the years. In 2008–2009, SFV carried out a project to reinstate a more authentic rendered façade. The new façade now blends in beautifully with the surrounding buildings.
