Motorcade arrived at the palace at 11:11am.
POTUS entered the room with the Italian president at 11:18am. They greeted each member of he US delegation that was lined up. Then they greeted each member of the Italian delegation, walking together down the line.
The two leaders then stood in front of American and Italian flags for a photo. The president stuck out his hand for POTUS to shake. They shook hands for the cameras then proceeded into a smaller room for their meeting. The number of reporters allowed in for that was suddenly cut back so another pooler handled that. Report TK.
