The social dinner will be held at Palazzo Isolani, in Bologna city centre (Corte Isolani 8/a), on 23 September at 20:30.
Palazzo Isolani is a beautiful and historical building in the heart of Bologna's medieval centre. It looks onto the splendid Piazza delle Sette Chiese (Seven Churches) and is very close to the famous Due Torri (Two Towers). Along with other buildings in the area, it is still privately owned by the Cavazza Isolani family. The seventeenth-century rooms on the ground floor are richly frescoed, decorated with damask tapestries and furnished with original furniture and paintings. These include portraits of the Isolani and the family of the famous King of Naples, Gioacchino Murat, to whom the Isolani became related in the early nineteenth century.
