Congress venue

Angelicum – Congress Centre

Address: Largo Angelicum, 1 – 00184 Rome, Italy
Web site: https://angelicum.it/

The convention centre’s historical site, simply known also as “the Angelicum”, is located exactly in the centre of Rome and dates back to 1569. Along with the annexed Convent and Baroque Church of Saints Dominic and Sixths, the property is also home to the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas, one of the Vatican’s most important and prestigious places of learning for intellectuals in the Catholic world.

The Angelicum Convention Centre, with its two auditoriums and 11 smaller meeting rooms, encloses the original cloister with its garden and fountain forming the heart of the Angelicum. Richly steeped in history, the Angelicum has received Popes, heads of state and many of the most powerful and most important figures of the last 300 years.

The Angelicum is a truly historical Roman structure which exhibits the priceless markings of some of the greatest masters of the High Renaissance (artists such as Lorenzo Bernini, Giacomo della Porta and Vincenzo della Greca) whose classic masterpieces can also be seen in Piazza Navona, Piazza Barberini and at the foot of the Spanish Steps.
