The Conference will be held in the Castello Angioino, a 13th century castle located in the old town of Gallipoli (Greek: Καλλίπολις, meaning "Beautiful City"), Apulia, 40 km from Lecce. The Castle, built in the 13th century by the Byzantines, and largely modified under the Angevines and the Aragonese, was recently restored and opened to the public after 30 years.
