Consul General Marco Nobili

Like many of you, our Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers are still struggling to come to terms with the sudden loss of Consul General Marco Nobili, on January 12th.

In the few short months since taking his post in September, Marco was a regular face at Chamber meetings and events. He quickly became a dear friend to all of us in the ICCCW office and to countless in our community.
Marco was a visionary and had big ambitions for the future of trade relations between Italy and Western Canada. His friendship and support as well as his positivity and energy will be dearly missed.

The passing of Marco also left a void in the diplomatic community where he was widely admired and respected. On January 27th, the day that his remains departed Canada, the flags at both Vancouver City Hall and the BC Parliament buildings in Victoria were flown at half-mast. City Hall also illuminated green, white and red as a gesture of support for the Nobili family and the Italian community.

Please take a moment to read our tribute to Marco Nobili and his extraordinary life dedicated to service.
