A Welcome Reception will be held at Caffé Pedrocchi on Monday 6 June at 7:30 pm in the "Piazzetta"
The Pedrocchi Café is one of the smartest cafés in the world, included in a 19th century building in the centre of Padua, northern Italy. Its rooms are decorated in various styles and show the great eclecticism of Giuseppe Jappelli, the architect who designed the building.
The café is historically known for having been the centre of the 1848 riots in Padua as well as for having been and for being still nowadays the meeting point of great artists such as the French novelist Stendhal, the English poet Lord Byron, the Italian Nobel prize winner Dario Fo. Since its foundation, students were able to meet in the Sala Verde (Green Room) without having to buy drinks. One wall of the adjacent Sala Bianca (White Room) has a bullet hole left by an Austrian rifle during the student riots of 1848, recalling the originally highly animated atmosphere of this coffee-house, a meeting point for students and professors.
