The conference will be held in Faenza, a nice medieval city in the north-east of Italy, home of an ancient tradition in design and craftsmanship.

You will be surprised to learn how easy it is to reach Faenza!

By Car
If you come from Milan, Bologna or Rimini, you can reach the conference venue driving on Statale 9 "Emilia" (Highway) or on the Autostrada A14 (tolled motorway).
Take the exit at Faenza.
If you come from Florence or Ravenna just drive on Statale 302.
By Train
Faenza is also well served by the railway line.
About every half hour a train leaves from Bologna Centrale and reaches the town in 25/30 minutes.

By Plane
If you're coming from further afield, "G. Marconi" Airport (BLQ) serves many European destinations, and is just a 25 minute bus ride away from Bologna Centrale (Railway Station). Use Kayak or Skyscanner to find the best rates for your flight.
Once in Faenza
Once you reach Faenza, if you're by car, you can safely park in one of the many free car parks in the city.
Faenza is a small town and you could easily cover it all walking just few minutes.
However, if you're a bit lazy, you can always take advantage of the bike sharing service (8 Euros one-off).
