Practicalities

Conference venues:

– 21 June: Sapienza University – Via Carlo Fea 5 (Metro Stop: Piazza Bologna): 

– 22-23 June: LUISS University of Rome – Viale Romania 32 (Tram and Bus Stop: Piazza Ungheria):

Few words about locations

Sapienza University: rooms are located in various parts of the main building, which you can see as you walk down the path after the entrance gate in Via Carlo Fea. In particular, rooms X and XI are up to the emergency stairs that you can see on your left, when looking at the building. Room II is ground floor of the main building, on the right side. Room VI is close to the library, ground floor on the left side of the main building. The registration desk will be placed inside room VI.

LUISS: the conference takes place in the second building you can see on your right after the main entrance, from Viale Romania 32. In this building, ‘first floor’ indicates the basement, ‘second floor’ is the ground floor.

 

 

Airport(s):

Rome has two airports:

Trains:

Rome can easily be reached by train – in particular, the Frecce and Alta velocità routes stop at Roma Termini. See here: https://www.lefrecce.it/B2CWeb/search.do?parameter=changeLanguage&cFID=PMbAJ6G4yeI1&lang=en&

Accommodations:

Rome is a big city but accommodation close to the conference venue is quite limited, especially in June. We therefore strongly recommend booking accommodation in advance. Participants should book their own accommodation directly.

Tourism: sightseeing and leisure 🙂

This will be a crowded Conference. But you may find time to visit Rome, especially if it is your first time here. As you know, there are some musts for newcomers, but the city is too well-known and big to give uncontroversial tips. So, here’s a list of websites where bloggers, correspondents for international newspapers and other ‘experts’ give their thoughts:
