About us

The Agency for Meteorology and Climatology “ItaliaMeteo” is the new national meteorological service structure. As provided for by Law 205/2017 and consistently with the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), it operates to increase the competitiveness and efficiency of the Italian meteorological system, by strengthening and rationalising activities in the fields of weather monitoring and forecasting, climate and meteo-marine assessments and forecasts, together with national and regional weather agencies.

The Agency’s activities are subject to the technical-scientific supervision of the Committee for Meteorology and Climatology, in charge of formulating its strategic guidelines, and to the administrative, accounting and financial supervision of the Ministry of University and Research.
