Congress Dinner at Palazzo Brancaccio
evening of Wednesday, 18 September

The Congress dinner will be held in this historical dwelling, in baroque style, located just a step away from the Domus Aurea, between the Colosseum and the basilicas of San Giovanni and Santa Maria Maggiore, at a two km walking distance from the Faculty of Engineering of Sapienza University of Rome (i.e., the Congress venue).

The location has a magnificent Gala Room and several other rooms where the seated dinner will be held.
Palazzo Brancaccio has also a beautiful and 1000 square meter extended park where the welcome aperitif will be set.
