The South African Ambassador in Rome, Ms Nomatemba Tambo, also joined the Minister during his visit.

Minister Mashatile, who has for the first time obtained a permanent space for South Africa for the next 20 years in one of the renovated pavilions of La Biennale, officially opened the South African pavilion on 31 May 2013.
