The location of Computing Frontiers 2023 will be held (in person) in the city of Bologna, located on the north-east of Italy.
Bologna is the lively, historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, in northern Italy. With beautiful plazas, cafes, Portici(arcades),
and medieval and Renaissance structures, Bologna is a city of two intriguing halves.
On one side is the hard-working hi-tech city with suave operagoers that waltz out of the
theatres and reconvene in some of the nation's finest restaurants.
On the other side is the politically edgy city that hosts the world's oldest
university and is famous for its graffiti-embellished piazzas filled with
students swapping Gothic fashion tips.
Getting to Bologna
- By Plane - Bologna's Guglielmo Marconi airport, a major airport in Italy, is 8 km northwest of the city. The Airport is a 7 minute tram ride and Marconi Express Ticket can be purchased directly at the tram gate with PAY&GO CONTACTLESS - and costs 9.20€ to the Historic Down-Town (train station), connecting Bologna to the main Italian and European airports. Taxi is also available and in average costs 25-30€ to get to the city centre.
- By Bus - Intercity buses leave from the main bus station, Piazza XX Settembre, just southeast of the train station. Buses arrive to the bus station from the main towns in the Province of Bologna and from all major Italian and European cities.
- By Car - In Bologna there are the two main Italian motorways, linking the north and south of the country (A1 and A14), thus it can be reached directly from all major Italian cities, i.e. Milan, Florence and Rome. Major car-hire companies are represented at Guglielmo Marconi airport and outside the train station.
- By Train - Due to high speed trains you can now arrive at Bologna Central Station from Florence in half an hour, from Milan in an hour, from Venice in an hour and a half, and from Rome in 2 and a half hours.
The location of Computing Frontiers 2023 will be at the heart of the Bologna historical city in
Complesso di San Giovanni in Monte.
The San Giovanni in Monte Complex is a historical 16th century monastery building (1543)
that still today overlooks the bordering portion of the old town centre of Bologna from
the artificial "hill". A former monastery of the Order of Canons Lateran, it was thoroughly
restored at the end of the 1990s and streamlined again after its use as a prison between
the age of Napoleon until 1984.
The restoration was a cultural revisiting of its function as place of study and meditation,
which the monastery building acquired for the city during the Renaissance age. The large
cloister, called "Doric" or "old", a sort of magnificent foyer onto the church square of
San Giovanni in Monte that is open to the city, is extremely impressive. The 16th century
executions include the large refectory, which today is the Giorgio Prodi Lecture Hall, an
official hall where Bartolomeo Cesi's fresco depicting the parable of the royal wedding
taken from a passage from the Gospels, Matthew 22, stands in centre stage.
However, the history of the building is much older as, based on tradition, the complex
was built in the 5th century by the bishop Petronius for the purpose of symbolically
depicting the places and paths of the Passion of Christ. Nevertheless, many clues
lead to the hypothesis that the older substratum was formerly the site of a public
building of the Augustan age, placed at the border of the Roman city, but
strategically situated in a high position overlooking the access of Via Aemilia from the east.
On 29 January 1944, the church was badly damaged after a bombing raid, with
three chapels destroyed and considerable damage to the portico, the vault,
and other chapels. The church was restored between 1947 and 1950.
