The conference will take place at the historical Villa Guastavillani campus of the University of Bologna Business School in Bologna, Italy. This elegant historical villa is decorated with frescoes from the 15th century immersed in the green of its immaculate gardens. The University of Bologna, founded in 1088, is the oldest university in the world (operating continuously) and is the first degree-awarding institution of higher learning. Known as the learned city and for its rich history (since the Etruscans in 6th century BC), Bologna is famous for its rich cuisine as well as for its towers, churches, red tiled roof tops and lengthy porticoes (a Unesco World Heritage Site) decorating its well-preserved historical centre. Bologna was also recently named the best city in Italy for overall quality of life.
