Rich in spaces dedicated to knowledge, art and science. Padua was one of the cultural capitals of the fourteenth century: among the pictorial testimonies of the XIV century, Giotto’s fresco cycle at the Scrovegni Chapel, make it a crucial node in the development of Western art.




In fully transposing the guidelines developed by AEFI (the Italian Exhibition and Trade Fair Association) and validated by the Ministerial Decree of the 14 th July 2020, we have analyzed some modalities of application that ensure the maximum health security. Furthermore, the large spaces (covered and uncovered) of our exhibition center, easily guarantee the distance in every situation. In this way, the original design of the manifestation will not undergo any change or limit the possibilities of fruition.

Reviews and Photogallery

“Africa, there is stable economic growth. Investment and productivity are increasing. Africa remains the second region of the Planet for fastest growth. The medium and long-term predictions are good. During 2019, for the first time in a decade, the investment expenditure, rather than the consumption, has represented over then 50% of GDP growth“ this shift can potentially help to sustain and to accelerate the future growth in Africa. Finally it can also help to increase the present and future production base of the continent, by improving at the same time the productivity of the workforce “ as stated in the African Economic Outlook (AEO) 2020, the economic report of the continent carried out every year by the African Development Bank (AfDB).
