Information for attendees



To register for the conference, please go to Registration form.


Participation to the conference is free of charge, but prior registration is required. The deadline for registration is on Tuesday, 10th May.


In order to get to Ravenna, the best airport is doubtlessly Bologna. A shuttle service connects the airport to Bologna railway station: the journey takes only a few minutes. Ravenna can be reached in around 75’ from Bologna by train: trains leave every hour, usually at 6 past the hour, plus some additional trains (for further information, please check the Trenitalia website).

The conference will take place at the Faculty of Law (via G. Oberdan, 1), which is a 15 minutes’ walk from the railway station. Many buses leave from the station and stop not so far from the Faculty of Law (unfortunately the website seems to be available only in Italian), but going on foot or even taking a taxi are probably the best options.


Ravenna has a range of hotel, Airbnb and B&B accommodation; further options can be found by the seaside, but please be aware that, in this second case, you would be staying approximately 20 kilometres from the city centre.

COVID-19 rules:

As of today, a COVID-19 green certificate or an equivalent certification is still necessary to enter Italy from abroad: please check all the details. Passengers are also required to fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before departure.  A COVID-19 green certificate or an equivalent certification is also required in restaurants, except for outdoor tables, and on trains, except for local trains (such as the ones from Bologna to Ravenna). Wearing an FFP2 (or KN95) facemask is compulsory on public transport. Possibly the best information in English on COVID-19 rules in Italy can be found on the dedicated webpage of the government of the United Kingdom. University of Bologna adopted some additional measures, which include – up to 30th April – the need of an EU digital COVID certificate (the NHS COVID Pass is considered to be equivalent, provided it carries a verifiable QR code) for attendees to conferences.

It is expected that some restrictions will be lifted or loosened on 1st May, so checking the above-mentioned websites shortly before travelling to Ravenna is highly advisable.
