*Now Operational* G7 Summit
Italy hosts the annual Group of Seven summit of leading industrial nations in Taormina on 26 to 27 May 2017.
The gathering will see U.S. President Donald Trump and the leaders of six other major economies confer on world issues in the hilltop Sicilian resort town, which boasts an ancient Greek theatre and stunning views of the sea and the volcanic Mount Etna.
The government has earmarked 15 million euros ($16 million) for the improvement of infrastructure to secure the summit venue amid threats of protests.
This will be the first G7 summit for Trump, Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni, British Prime Minister Theresa May and the new French President. The leaders of Canada, Germany, Japan and the European Union will also attend.
