The workshop will take place at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro.
The center is in the hilltop town of Bertinoro in Emilia Romagna about 50km east of Bologna at an elevation of about 230m. Here is a map putting it in context. It is easily reached by train and taxi from Bologna and is close to many splendid Italian locations such as Ravenna, a treasure trove of Byzantine art and history, and the Republic of San Marino (all within 35km) as well as some less well-known locations like the thermal springs of Fratta Terme and the castle and monastic gardens of Monte Maggio. Bertinoro can also be a base for visiting some of the better-known Italian locations such as Padua, Ferrara, Vicenza, Venice, Florence and Siena.
Bertinoro itself is picturesque, with many narrow streets and walkways winding around the central peak. The meeting will be held in a redoubtable ex-Episcopal fortress that has been converted by the University of Bologna into a modern conference center with computing facilities and Internet access. From the fortress you can enjoy a beautiful the vista that stretches from the Tuscan Apennines to the Adriatic coast.
The Bertinoro Center provides instructions for reaching Bertinoro.
