The 2013 IEEE Magnetics Society Summer School will take place in Assisi, a UNESCO World heritage site, in the Umbria Region whose capital is the city of Perugia. Information about Assisi can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assisi
Perugia and Assisi form an extraordinary tandem of history, culture and art, so that recently the twin cities were candidates to be the European capital of culture in 2019 (http://www.perugiassisi2019.eu/).
Assisi is the enchanting medieval Italian town where St. Francis, blind and sick wrote the famous “Cantico delle creature” the first expression of the Italian language. Assisi represents an ensemble of masterpieces of human creative genius, such as the Basilica of San Francesco, which have made it a fundamental reference for art history in Europe and contributed to developments in art and architecture in the world. Assisi represents a unique example of continuity of a city within its environmental setting from its Umbrian-Roman and medieval origins to the present, represented in the cultural landscape, the religious ensembles, systems of communication, and traditional land-use.
The school will be held at La Cittadella Hotel, set in the historic centre of Assisi (Via Degli Ancajani 3 ), at 500 metres from St. Francis of Assisi Basilica. La Cittadella is housed in a converted medieval building, offering comfortable accommodation. It is a perfect place to host an event that requires a peaceful environment, such as a training course or a school.
