Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know how easy it would be to visit the American Embassy in Rome these  days, but it would be well worthwhile if one could arrange it. Visitors to the chancery vs. consulate can bring their bags in after security checks.

The US Embassy in Rome is housed in the Palace Margarita (sorry about the non- Italian spelling), and the place is a museum with its own appointed curator.  Supposedly the Palace is situated on the site of a country villa where Julius Caesar took Cleopatra.
