Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi will visit Russia on November 26-29 at President Vladimir Putin's invitation, a Kremlin spokesman said on Friday. He did not give any details about Ciampi's agenda in Moscow. Putin invited Ciampi to visit Russia at an official dinner at the Italian president's palace during a trip to Rome last June. Putin also invited Italian Prime Minister Giuliano Amato to come to Russia, Reuters reports. Amato accepted the invitation but no firm date for the visit was set.
