ECIA GA 2022 and celebration of 30th Anniversary will take place in Florence!

On 24 September 2022 the ECIA will have its yearly General Assembly. As ECIA was founded October 1992, we will also celebrate the 30th Anniversary of ECIA. This special occasion needs a special event! AIPI, our Italian member and host for this event, has organized a great program for the whole weekend that will take place in the beautiful historical city of Florence (Italy).

The present glory of Florence is mainly its past, its historic centre was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1982. The buildings are works of art abounding in yet more works of art, and the splendours of the city are stamped with the personalities of the individuals who made them. Among the most famous of the city’s cultural giants are Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante, Machiavelli, Galileo, and its most-renowned rulers, generations of the Medici family.

We are really proud to announce that the General Assembly and the Round Tables will take place on Saturday 24th September 2022 at the famous Palazzo Medici Riccardi. This beautiful palace was built between 1444 and 1484 for Cosimo de' Medici, head of the powerful and influential Medici family, which played a leading role in the arts in Florence as the founders of international banking during the 15th century. Nowadays the Palazzo serves as a museum. We will have the meeting in the impressive monumental Sala degli specchi (Gallery of Mirrors), one of the most beautiful parts of the building. This wonderful special venue will turn the ECIA GA into a once-in-a-lifetime experience !
