The Workshop Venue

The workshop will be held in Padova, Italy. Padova is situated in northern Italy, about 30 km west of Venice and is easily accessed by plane, train or car. Padova is an ancient city and the legend goes that it was founded more than a thousand years before Christ, when Antenor escaping from the destruction of Troy sought refuge here. The roman city of “Patavium” was a cultural and economic centre throughout the whole period of the Roman Empire. Padova hosts one of the oldest universities in Europe, founded in 1222, where Galileo Galilei was teaching from 1592 to 1610.

The workshop venue, Cultural Center Altinate/San Gaetano, is situated in the city centre at a few minutes walking distance from the major monuments of the city and from the Physics Department of the University of Padova.
