Social Programme 2016


Turin (Torino), with its museums, cinemas, theatres, and historical buildings, is one of the most cultural, scientific, artistic and visited city of Italy. It was defined by Le Corbusier as “the city with the most beautiful natural position in the world” and was celebrated by many historical figures, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Mark Twain, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, describing the landscape from Superga Hill as “the most beautiful sight that could hit the human eye”. Torino is one of the most important European Baroque cities and it is considered the Italian capital of Art Nouveau, with its numerous and famous historical Cafes. The meeting will therefore not only be beneficial in its scientific content but will also appeal to lovers of music, film, art and history.









The congress dinner (included in the registration fee) will be at the Mole Antonelliana, the famous symbol of Turin, which houses the Torino Film Museum. There will be an opportunity to visit the museum and to travel in the glass lift for amazing views over the city.
