US embassy preps for Obama visit with social media humor (ANSA) - Rome, March 25 - The US embassy has joined in the Italian capital's preparations ahead of an official visit Thursday by US President Barack Obama by posting a humorous video on social media.

It features a montage of tourists having their picture taken with a life-size cardboard cutout of the American president in front of Rome's best-known monuments.

It also includes a still of Obama posing with beloved Roma soccer team captain, Francesco Totti.

"Informal talks have begun already... what did Totti and President Obama talk about?" the US embassy tweeted Monday.
