The Federal Government, through the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, met Italian officials including the President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Laura Boldrini; the Chief of Italian Police, Franco Gabrielli; and the General Commander of Italy’s Carabinieri, Tullio Del Sette, in Italy.
