FONDAZIONE BRUNO KESSLER - HUMANITIES HUB
This year the workshop will be held in Trento city centre, at the Centro Santa Chiara, near the Humanities Hub of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler in Via Santa Croce 77, 38122 Trento.
Lying at the heart of the Dolomite Mountains, near Lake Garda, Trento offers a delightful sample of Italy's best: magnificent nature, rich cultural heritage, fantastic food and wine. Trento is also a cosmopolitan city, at the crossroads of the contrasting cultures of Italy and Northern Europe; it is the home of a prestigious university where the conference will take place.
Capital of Trentino, not far from the Dolomites and the numerous lakes that can be found nearby, Trento is a city of art that has a strong Renaissance mark, which characterizes it for its colors, its buildings and make it unique in the entire Alpine arc.
Alps can be reached quickly by even the hardest-working conference attendee.
Known as the “painted city”, Trento offers many beautiful buildings within its compact historical center. Some of these were built to accommodate delegates to the Council of Trent (1545–1563). Most of the historical center has little or no traffic. Even brief walks during breaks from the conference are enjoyable. Culinary delights ranging from an cone of Italian ice cream to a multi-course meal can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors.
