Frontiers of Interaction – 2012

Rome, Italy - June, 2012 hashtag: #foi12

Location and Venue 2012

We are back in Rome!

After 2009 and 2010 editions, we felt it was now time to be back.
For many reasons:

  • as Capital of Italy and home of politic life,  Rome is now leading the new Italian Renaissance
  • Rome is now hosting some of the coolest Tech and Digital events (some of them were co-produced by Frontiers here and here).. and yes, there’s one more thing:
  • is the most beautiful city in the World.

A place where we hope you will enjoy our stay (extending your stay for the whole week end is highly recommended)

Do we really need to say something about Rome?
Ok, here we go.

Rome is the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural riches in the world.
Its historical centre, outlined by the enclosing Aurelian Walls, layering nearly three thousand years of antiquity, is an invaluable testimony to the European western world’s cultural, artistic and historical legacy and in 1980 it was, together with the Holy See’s property beyond the confines of the Vatican State as well as the Basilica of St. Paul outside the Walls, were added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List .
Over 16% of the world’s cultural treasures are located in Rome (70% in all of Italy).
