Welcome to the NATO Rapid
Deployable Corps (Italy)
On behalf of the men and women at NATO Rapid Deployable Corps – Italy, I’d like to welcome you to our official website!

Here you will find information covering our activities, mission, structure, history and other topics.

NRDC – ITA is one of the Alliance’s seven Rapid Deployable Corps Headquarters, and is one of the two high profile NATO organisations based in Italy.

We are a multinational NATO Headquarters with more than 2000 military and civilian personnel coming from 15 NATO nations, based in Solbiate Olona, close to Milan. We pride ourselves in our diverse and talented work force.

Ours is a military community that includes the families of NRDC-ITA personnel and encourages their participation in the Headquarters daily life, through a variety of clubs and organisations supported by dedicated welfare facilities. 

At NRDC-ITA we feel privileged to live in and be part of the local Italian communities, in which our members also play a key role supporting local schools, clubs and organisations.

Should you need further information, do not hesitate to contact the Public Affairs Office. They will be glad to assist you.
