Rome is the capital of Italy and with 28 centuries long history is considered one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe. Rome is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio (Latium), along the shores of the Tiber. The Vatican City is an independent country inside the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason Rome has been often defined as capital of two states.

You will get a chance to feel some ancient spirit thanks to this year conference venue right in the city center.

Congress venue: Angelicum Congress Centre

Address: Largo Angelicum 1, 00184 Rome RM, Italy

Angelicum in Rome is located in the precise geographical centre of the city and dates back to 1569. The property is home to the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas, one of the Vatican's most important and prestigious places of learning for intellectuals in the Catholic world.
