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. The construction of the complex dates to the mid-thirteenth century and is situated in Cortona’s historic center, inside the circuit of city walls originally built by the Etruscan civilization.

The complex is walking distance from all the major tourist sights in the city, the Palazzo Comunale, the two museums (the MAEC and the Museo Diocesano), Via Nazionale (the shopping street), the Signorelli Theater and the Parterre public gardens. The convent is laid out on a square plan surounding a cloister decorated with 29 frescoes raccounting the life of Saint Augustine. Since 2008 the center has had a wonderful new meeting hall: The Auditorium of the Church of Sant’Augustino which can accomodate up to 300 people and is situated in the Church of the same name which dates to the 13th century.

Masterfully remodeled and featuring the most modern technology is a multi-functional space which is suitable for exhibitions, conferences , cultural and technological events. The center has 10 conference rooms which can welcome small groups as well. All are equiped with a wide band internet connection, audio and video systems and exhibit space outside the rooms.

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.
