The conference will be held at the prestigious Giorgio Prodi lecture hall, in the heart of the Monumental Complex of San Giovanni in Monte, a place of extraordinary beauty and historical art value in the centre of Bologna. The current lecture hall, adorned with a beautiful sixteenth-century fresco by Bartolomeo Cesi, was once the dining-hall of the nunnery of the Lateran Canons. The outside magnificent cloister and its sixteenth-century porch will be the enchanting frame of all coffee and lunch breaks, and poster exhibition.
