Chi siamo, veduta sul chiostro

Convention Services

The Centro Convegni has its head office in the ex-convent of Sant’Agostino, beside the Church of the same name. The construction of the complex dates to the mid-thirteenth century and is located in Cortona’s historic center.

The convent consists of a large building on a square plan surrounding a central cloister which is decorated with 29 frescoes depicting episodes from the life of Saint Augustine. These frescoes, on the ground floor, overlook a splendid space under a vaulted walkway where the conference rooms and services for the Centro Convegni are located.

The Church of Sant’Augustino, following a recent restoration, has become the Auditorium and today the Centro features multi-use conference rooms of all sizes, with capacities from 25 up to 300. All are equipped with advanced technology and all the necessary comforts.

The Centro is a place for studies, and enjoys the privilege of welcoming some of the great Italian and foreign institutions including:

  • The ‘Scuola Normale Superiore’ University of Pisa
  • The Region of Tuscany
  • The University of Florence
  • The University "Sapienza" of Rome
  • The University "l’Orientale" of Naples
  • The University of Alberta, Canada
  • The Italian Genetics Association
  • The Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation
  • The IFPAC N. Y. (International process analytical chemistry)

The Centro is also in demand for conventions for pharmaceutical and medical firms and national political organizations such as the Democratic Party (PD) Summer School.
