Rome, a world renowned tourist destination, thanks to the architect Tommaso Valle and its great architectural work for Fiera di Roma, has become a very important business catalyst in the middle of economic flows between the north and south of Italy and Europe. Fiera di Roma, with its own 390.000 sqm, is located in a strategic position, served by an excellent transport network, which makes it easy to reach and discover.
