The conference will take place in the Roma Tre University - Argiletum at the Urbano VIII Conference Room.

Address: via Madonna dei Monti 40, Rione Monti, Roma. The Argiletum is the building on the left side of the Madonna dei Monti Church.

It is a wonderful location at the very historical heart of Rome. It is reacheable by 5min walk from the Cavour underground station (Metro - Linea B).

We wish to remind you that we are unable to support travel or living expenses.


Rione Monti, as it is called the area surrounding the Argiletum, provides a large selection of accommodations of all sorts (Hotels, B&B and so on), see the accommodation page.

Organizing Committee

Corrado Falcolini (Roma Tre University), Anna Chiara Lai (La Sapienza University of Rome), Roberto Maieli (Roma Tre University), Valerio Talamanca (Roma Tre University)
