Welcome to our second face-to-face-meeting of the Heads of Communications in Continental Europe. Last year, at our first face-to-face meeting, we have experienced how powerful it is to spend time together, to make better connections and learn from each other. Let’s have the same experience this year on our quest to raise the bar for Communications and create more and more value for Sodexo.
On this mini website, you will find all the details of our days here in Rome.
I look forward to another great meeting together
Rome, often referred to as the “Eternal City,” stands as a timeless testament to the grandeur of human civilization. Nestled in the heart of Italy, Rome is a city where ancient history and modern life seamlessly coexist. Its storied past, which spans over two and a half millennia, has left an indelible mark on the world, shaping the course of art, culture, politics, and religion. From the awe-inspiring Colosseum to the majestic Vatican City, Rome is a living museum of antiquity, a vibrant hub of contemporary Italian culture, and a destination that continues to captivate travelers from around the globe. With its rich history, iconic landmarks, and delectable cuisine, Rome beckons all who visit to explore its historic streets and bask in the eternal beauty of the city.
The EUR area was originally chosen in the 1930s as the site for the 1942 World’s Fair which Benito Mussolini planned to open to celebrate twenty years of Fascism, the letters EUR standing for Esposizione Universale Roma (“Universal Exposition Rome”). The project was originally called E42 after the year in which the exhibition was to be held. EUR was also designed to direct the expansion of the city towards the south-west and the sea, and to be a new city centre for Rome. The planned exhibition never took place due to World War II.
