Welcome reception @ Complesso San Geminiano
July 2, 2018 · 6.30 (PM)
Included in the FULL & STUDENT REGISTRATION FEE
The Welcome Reception will take place at the wonderful Complesso San Geminiano (conference venue) on the Modena downtown.
This convent was originally built as a hospital in 1348, the year in which the plague was at its peak. It continued as a hospital until the middle of the following century. In 1348 the facility was transformed into a convent for the San Geminiano nuns. In 1586 the convent was adorned with two bell towers. In 1798, when the monastic order was suppressed, the convent was permanently closed and the buildings were used for a wide variety of activities: the city bakery was located here as well as the Amateur Theatre.
Nowadays it's the siege of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Faculty of Law. Still today one can admire the lovely XV century cloisters adorned by a double series of arches.
During the reception, the registration will be available from 6.30 to 8.00 pm.
