We are co-hosting the Satellite in Rome in the magnificent Sala della Protomoteca on the Capitoline Hill immediately preceding the IFLA World Congress in Athens. The theme of the Satellite, The evolving concept of ‘Library‘ and its impact on library design is expected to attract attendees from around the globe. Our Sections are well known across the library community, and we anticipate that the location in the Capitoline Museum complex as well as the program speakers (thought leaders, librarians, architects and designers) will be a huge draw-card.

Our reception on Wednesday 21 August will be held at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna. Take the time while you are there to view some of the exciting exhibitions.

We hope to see you there!
