Pavia, called Ticinum in antiquity, is situated in south-western Lombardy, 30 km south of Milan, and is the capital of a fertile province essentially devoted to agriculture (wine, rice, cereals, dairy products).
Founded in Roman times, Pavia became the Capital of the Lombard Kingdom for two centuries, and its fascination remains intact with the centre’s maze of narrow streets, ancient churches and elegant buildings, all bordered by the Ticino river.
Founded in 1361, the University of Pavia is one of the world’s oldest academic institutions. Like Oxford and Cambridge in the UK, Pavia has a unique college system in Italy, dating back to the 16th century.
The workshop will be held at the University of Pavia in Corso Strada Nuova 65, Pavia.
