Gala Dinner

The conference dinner will take place on Wednesday 18th September at the magnificent Villa Quintili, a magnificent historical residence with 200 years of history. Located in the heart of Appia Antica and close to the nymphaeum of what was once the residence of the consuls Sesto Quintilio Valerio and Condiano, Villa Quintili is a jewel set among the superb and majestic beauty of Imperial Rome.  

Prince del Drago commisioned Architect Busiri Vici to design the Villa surrounded by a park of four hectares. The relationship between the del Drago family and Spanish royalty is recognizable in the Villa’s style of arches and  interior patio. At the end of the 70’s, the rooms of the Villa were redecorated by Marco Gobbi, keeping them in theme with the environment. The ancient busts representing Roman emperors and the neoclassical furniture arranged in the spacious halls make Villa Quintili a rare jewel, set in the Roman “Appia Antica”.
