A reception, fully sponsored by Google, will be held at Grand Hotel Plaza on 2 April at 19.30.

The Grand Hotel Plaza in Rome is one of the oldest and most prestigious hotels to be found in the Eternal City. Situated in the heart of the historical centre of Rome and only a few steps away from Trinità dei Monti, otherwise known as the Spanish Steps - home to Via dei Condotti and the best shopping in Rome.


The banquet will be held at Casina Valadier on 3 April at 19.30.

The Casina Valadier reopened to the public on June 19th 2004. After many alternating periods of great splendour and long silences, thanks to a group of entrepreneurs and professionals, the jewel of Villa Borghese has been given back to the city and the Romans in all its old magnificence. Restored according to the original project by Valadier and given all the advantages of technology of the third millennium, the Casina offers today to its guests, in an elegant 18th century setting, a wide range of high quality services that make the Casina unique in its genre. As well as the restaurant on the upper floors and the terraces that have made it famous, the pearl of the Pincio is enriched by a cafè in the garden, an elegant wine cellar in the Sala Romana and a refined bar on the first floor, ideal for aperitif and after dinner drinks with a view of Rome. The restoration works have also uncovered the ancient Roman Cistern, the important archeological site over which the building was built. Looking out over Rome, immersed in greenery and rich in history, the Casina Valadier, today more than yesterday, is one of the most evocative places in the eternal city.
