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. The opening was well attended by approximately 200 people, amongst whom were media representatives, key stakeholders from the arts sector, academia and the general public.
