The CREATIVE KOREA Conference Venue is located at the Department of Arts, in Palazzo Marescotti Brazzetti (via Barberia 4, Bologna), an important historical Renaissance building located in the city center. 

Most of the activities will take place in the main room of the building, Salone Marescotti.

The building was designed by Giovanni Beroaldo on the ruins of ancient structures and subsequently embellished with frescos by Rolli and Caccioli, and the majestic baroque stairway by Gian Giacomo Monti.

In fairly recent times, it also hosted the provincial headquarters for the Communist Party, as well as the Gramsci Institute and the newspaper “L’Unità”.

In 1997, Palazzo Marescotti was acquired by the University of Bologna, to then host the Department of Music and Drama Studies.

After exceptional renovation works, carried out between 2003 and 2007, today the building hosts part of the research and teaching activities carried out by the Department of the Arts and by the Music and Drama Studies Library.
