In the Italian congress market, where events with less than 300 participants amounted to 97% of the total (data from the Italian Congress Observatory), Salerno is a candidate as a privileged location for 10 good reasons:

  1. Capital of an extraordinary province, set between the Amalfi Coast and Cilento, it includes places, landscapes, archaeological and natural parks, historical sites that are unique in the world; it is no coincidence that UNESCO has recognized the Amalfi Coast (with its pearls Amalfi, Positano, Ravello), the National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni with the archaeological areas of Paestum and Velia and with the Charterhouse of Padula, the Mediterranean Diet in Pioppi and Acciaroli in its World Heritage List;

  2. Capital of Italy during the Badoglio government (February 11th – July 15th, 1944), it is a protagonist in history also because its gulf was the scene of the Allied Landing (September 1943);

  3. Seat of the first University in the world, the Medical School of Salerno, established in the X century and of the current University Campus, whose departments boast centers of excellence in scientific research;

  4. Model of international urban redevelopment thanks to the interventions of numerous archistars (Bofil, Bohigas, Hadid, Fuksas, Chipperfield, Scarpa);

  5. Centrality of transport infrastructures: proximity to Naples International Airport (about 50 minutes); Final High Speed Railway Station for Southern Italy with Trenitalia and Italo from Milan (4 hours and 45 minutes), Turin (6 hours and 12 minutes), Venice (5 hours and 45 minutes), Bologna (3 hours and 36 minutes) ), Rome (1 hour and 30 minutes); direct access to the motorway networks, both from the North and from the South and in connection with the Adriatic Motorway;

  6. Barycentric geographical position with respect to the great cultural and tourist attractions present within a radius of 30/50 km: renowned locations and only distant 30/60 minutes;

  7. Ideal location for small/medium-sized conferences, it expresses the ideal atmosphere for moments of aggregation on a human scale;

  8. High livability, thanks to the greenery of the splendid tree-lined Lungomare and the Town Villa and for the entire pedestrianization of the city centre and the old town up to the suggestive Liberty Square;

  9. Mild climate due to the constant daily average temperature in each month of the year of maximum and minimum temperatures;

  10. “City of Welcome” for the innate Mediterranean hospitality of its inhabitants.
