Venue

BiCi events are held in the University Residential Center located in the small medieval hilltop town of Bertinoro. This town is in Emilia Romagna about 50km east of Bologna at an elevation of 230m above sea level.  Bertinoro is easily reached by train and taxi from Bologna and is close to many splendid Italian locations such as RavennaRimini on the Adriatic coast, and the Republic of San Marino (all within 35km) as well as some less well-known locations like the thermal springs of Fratta Terme, the Pieve di San Donato in Polenta and the castle and monastic gardens of Monte Maggio.  Bertinoro can also be a base for visiting some of the better-known Italian locations such as Padua, Ferrara, Vicenza, Venice, Florence and Siena. 

Bertinoro itself is picturesque, with many narrow streets and walkways winding around the central peak.  Meetings are held in an archiepiscopal castle that has been converted by the University of Bologna into a modern conference center with computing facilities and Internet access.  From the castle you can enjoy a beautiful vista that stretches from the Tuscan Apennines to the Adriatic coast and the Alps over the Po Valley.
