Centro Convegni Sant’Agostino

The Centro Convegni, managed by Cortona Sviluppo S.r.l. for the Comune of Cortona, has its offices in the former convent of Sant’Augustino, adjacent to the church bearing the same name.

Discover Cortona

Cortona is an Italian municipality in the Province of Arezzo and is the main cultural and tourism center in Arezzo’s Valdichiana.

The city of Cortona, standing at an elevation of about 500m above sea level on the slopes of a mountainous area between the Valdichiana and the Tiber Valley, has always been a center of considerable importance.

In fact, the city’s strategic position in the Valdichiana permitted it to control the various arteries of communication between the cities of Arezzo, Perugia, Siena and the Tiber Valley. This characteristic today places Cortona in a central, easy to reach position.
