Congress Dinner at Villa Finaly

The Congress Dinner will be held on Thursday the 12th September 2019 at 7.30 pm. The venue of the Congress Dinner is the Villa Finaly, a marvelous Villa built in 15 th century on the hills of Florence. The welcome drink and the buffet dinner will be served in the room Lully and in the garden.

Click here to read a brief history of the Villa.

The Villa Finlay was built on the hills of Fiesole in the fifteenth century. In 1864, when Florence became the capital of Italy, James of Rothschild, owner of a bank in Turin bought the Villa to sell it in 1866 to Baron Horace de Landau, the procurator of his bank. Baron Horace de Landau was one of the most important financiers of the Florentine Risorgimento movements and father of the Italian currency called lira. A man of great culture, a lover of art and books, he built one of the largest libraries in Europe with 60,000 volumes, the library is nowadays at the second-floor of the Villa (today the Richelieu room). It was considered one of the most beautiful and important private libraries in Europe with a full-time private librarian.

The Villa was donated to the University of Paris by the Landau-Finaly family in 1953. In the 1990s, the 13 universities of Paris and Île de France, heirs of the ancient University of Paris, became owners of the Villa and decided to restore it in order to return it to the ancient splendor. The restored Villa was inaugurated on May 31, 2000.

Today, the heart of the Villa is still the eight-columned rotunda, surmounted by a dome and built on a courtyard dating back to the 16th century. The rotunda was built by the architect and urbanist Giuseppe Poggi in 1859. From the rotunda, you enter the reception rooms that then overlook the Italian garden. The reception rooms include the large Michelangelo gallery, covered with trompe-l'œil frescoes, with embedded columns and Venetian marble floor; the ancient music hall decorated with friezes and representations of muses, today called Sala Lulli; the Bernini living room, finely painted by frappe and trompe-l'œil. In the opposite wing the ancient stables, today called Leonardo da Vinci hall.
