Tall ceilings, large windows that can be dimmed with automated curtains, well-lit spaces and accessibility for the disabled are the special features of the Antonianum that guarantee success and quality for events of all types.
Tastes and flavours are essential aspects of the organization of any event. Our “Fra’ Gusto Ristobar” can offer menus to cater for all special needs, from coffee breaks through to gala dinners, and with constant dedication to quality and style to savour the pleasures of the finest fare together.
The story of the Auditorium Antonianum started in 1947, when architects Mario Paniconi and Giulio Pediconi were commissioned to prepare designs for a Great Hall to host the students and events of the Pontifical University Antonianum, together with a series of lecture rooms and a library.
The new Great Hall was situated in the courtyard of the university, with the classic semi-circular form common to parliaments and academies offering excellent visibility and geometrical regularity of the seating places. The acoustics were optimized by Prof. Giacomini of Rome’s Electro-Acoustics Institute. The Great Hall, or Auditorium, was complemented by several smaller rooms used for study and research, and now available for smaller events.
