The Reception banquet (Sunday 13 May 2018)

We will welcome you to the ANS BEPU-2018 International Conference during the Reception Banquet on Sunday evening. The event will take place at the Real Collegio, i.e. the venue of the conference. The beautiful main cloister will be the perfect picture frame for meeting up with colleagues and students coming from many different affiliations all over the world.



Dinner with Lucca Historical Representation (Monday 14 May 2018)

The living history of Lucca recreated with care in each detail will amaze you during the second social event of the ANS BEPU-2018 International Conference. The Real Collegio with its 500-years of history on its shoulders will be the perfect location for this unique experience.



The Social Dinner in Historical Lucca’s Palace (Tuesday 15 May 2018)

The incomparable architectural design of Palazzo Pfanner will be the lovely location of the social dinner. With its grassy lawns, ornamental blossoms, tall shrubs and lemon trees in large earthenware pots interspersed among the monumental rows of eighteenth-century statues depicting the Olympian gods and the Four Seasons, the garden of Palazzo Pfanner represents a valuable example of a baroque garden set in the heart of the mediaeval town of Lucca.



Dinner in Historical Lucca’s Villa – nearby Lucca hills (Wednesday 16 May 2018)

A special dinner in one of the most beautiful historic villa in Tuscany, Villa Grabau. There is nothing more charming and unforgettable than a Gala in this magic setting, a journey through Renaissance elegance. The villa is located a few step away from Lucca, on its surrounding hills. (The dinner could be moved to Villa Oliva or Villa Fanini alternatively).



The Conference Dinner banquet (Thursday 17 May 2018)

The last social event will take place at the Real Collegio, the background of all the intense and fruitful days of the ANS BEPU-2018 International Conference. Once again you will have the opportunity to have dinner in the charming cloister of the old monastery.
