The Italian visit is under way.
At 9:12 a.m., on the sun covered South Lawn, POTUS and FLOTUS welcomed Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Mrs. Agnese Landini.
Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry were present, among other officials, as scores of people watched from behind rope lines, enjoying a comfortable 66-degree morning.
Remarks were open ... but POTUS noted at the top it is the last state dinner of his tenure. "We saved the best for last."
The welcoming ceremony concluded at 9:40 a.m.
