Eucas Evening @  Villa Lo Zerbino with Columbus Superconductors

Monday, September 16th -  A Cocktail dinner will be offered to the Eucas 2013 attendees in Villa Lo Zerbino by the Eucas 2013 Organization with the support of Columbus Superconductors, from 07:30 pm till 10:00 pm. 

Villa Lo Zerbino is one of the most fascinating and best preserved Genoese mansions. Built at the turn of the sixteenth century, but still with the characters of late Renaissance architecture, the Palace  was enriched at the bidding of the first patrons, the Balbi family, with a cycle of frescoes by Domenico Piola and Gregorio De Ferrari, two artists active in Genoa in the late seventeenth century. A spectacular park, invisible from the outside, takes the visitor by surprise and will be the striking backdrop of the party.

The event has been moved to this more receptive structure to accomodate in a comfortable way the large number of participants in this edition of Eucas. We trust that its unique atmosphere will succeed in making the participants not to regret the Modern Art masterpieces of Villa Croce.

A bus service will be provided from the conference venue to Villa Lo Zerbino (from 6:45 pm) only, while the return is left to the personal choice of the participants. Further details and indications will be given onsite.
