Conference Banquet

A stop in the "Santa Barbara" stables, a past setting for the World Riding Championships, opens your evening of games, snacks and... surprises.
The conference banquet will be held in the Odescalchi castle of Bracciano.

A chance to sample the delights of the local cuisine together with contemporary entertainment in a medieval castle guarantees an evening to remember.
