Rome is the capital and the most populated city of Italy. It is the only city of the world that host an independent country within its boundaries, that shall make it known as the “Capital of two states”. No city in the world equals its history. Founded 2700 years ago, it has been continuously occupied since then and exhibits today an exceptional cityscape where Classical, Neoclassical, Renaissance and Baroque art are integrated into one whole masterpiece. Ancient icons such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon recall the city’s golden age, when it was known as Caput Mundi, “Capital of the world”, whereas the many monumental basilicas testify the historical role as seat of the Catholic Church. For example, St Peter’s Basilica is the Vatican’s epic showpiece church, a towering masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Elsewhere, piazzas and impressive fountains, designed by the leading sculptors of their age, add a baroque ornament to the city’s streets. Today, Rome is the city with highest number of monuments in the word, which attract an average of 7 to 10 million tourists per year.
The SyMat meeting will be held in the premises of the Department of Industrial, Electronic and Mechanical engineering (DIIEM) of RomaTre university, Building “Vasca Navale – part B”, Via Vito Volterra 62, Rome.
