41 AGM ITALY 25th – 27th May 2018 – RIMINI

Dear friends,

my social year is expiring and my “retirement” as Italy National President is getting close.

But before the end of my mandate, during the next months, some intiatives have to be accomplished. Among these the most important, that I really hope I will be able to announce you, is “the lay of the foundation stone” of the Polifunctional Center in Arquata del Tronto BORGO 2. So we will be able to sum up what actually has been done in a few months.

Now, here I’m, to present you the official program of Italy 2018 AGM that will take place in Rimini from 25th to 27th May!

We start on Wednesday 23rd with a pre-welcome dinner in Rimini, then, two beautiful pre-tours: on Thursday 24th, Urbino, the pearl of Italian Reinassance and one of the most important Italian city of art; on Friday 25th, Gradara, the old fortified village famous for the tragedy of Paolo and Francesca, told by Dante Alighieri in his Divina Commedia, the piadina show cooking & taste and, before going back to the hotels, the exclusive shopping in one of the most known Italian fashion brand’s outlet (Gilmar/Iceberg or Alberta Ferretti Group or Max Mara TBD).

On Friday 25th at 6 p.m. we will meet in the main square of Verucchio for a guided tour of the old village and the Malatesta Castle where, in the evening, the welcome dinner with music and dance will take place .

On Saturday 26th morning, while delegates will be busy at the AGM, a guided tour of Rimini, with its Roman and Reinassance monuments , will be organized for accompanying people.

The AGM head quarter will be the fabulous Grand Hotel, one of the oldest hotel in Rimini and Federico Fellini’s preferred place to stay when he was in Rimini.

Both works and the Banner Exchange (about at 0:30 p.m. at the end of the meeting and before lunch) will be at the Sala Leonardo at the Grand Hotel’s Congress Center.

At 1:30 p.m. we will have buffet lunch all together at the Grand Hotel’s restaurant.

At 5:30 p.m. we will meet at the Museo della Città (by your own cars), in the city center, where the Ceremony of the incoming President’s investiture will take place, at the end of the Ceremony we will walk to the Galli Theater for the AGM Gala Dinner.

On Sunday 27th morning, farewell brunch at the Grand Hotel (optional).

May is very peak season since Rimini is a very known touristic and congress destination (in the same week-end the “Biennale” Eshibition and SCIVAC National Congress will take place).
