All events, talks, liturgies, meals will be held at the Salesianum which has a large auditorium, small conference rooms, all translation facilities, internet, single, double, triple bedrooms, air conditioning, a bar, etc.
The Salesianum is located on the outskirts of Rome and travel to and from the Salesianum from the centre of Rome is long (and expensive in a taxi). Whilst day registration is possible, we recommend that all conference participants reside at the Salesianum.
When the Salesians moved from Turin to Rome in the early 70’s, the Salesianum was used by the Salesian order itself as premises of the Salesian Family; for over thirty years, this place was considered as a “House of Culture and Spirituality”. For this reason, the Salesianum hosted a great deal of meetings, seminars, study days and soul exercises, residential courses extending over months, weekly updating seminars, general chapter meetings and much more.
On the occasion of the Great Jubilee of 2000, various congregations and religious institutions which were already familiar with the friendly and cordial attitude of the Salesians, suggested a renovation of the premises. Similarly, many different institutions and civil associations which knew the peaceful atmosphere of the Salesianum and the quality potential of the services offered, also suggested major improvements.
For this reason, the Salesianum was fully renovated, in compliance with all safety requirements into force. All meeting rooms have been equipped with the latest technology. At the same time, all renovations have been conceived in such a way to respect the spiritual needs of the guests.
