Previous U.S. Consuls General

The first U.S. Consulate in this consular district was established in the port city of Leghorn (Livorno). U.S. Consular Agent Philip Felicchi was appointed on May 29, 1794. The Government of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany did not recognize U.S. Consular Agents posted in Florence; thus the first U.S. Consular Agent to serve Florence was Vice Consular Agent James Ombrosi, who was under mandate from the U.S. Consulate at Leghorn (Livorno). Ombrosi was accredited on May 15, 1819.
