16 GENERAL INFORMATION MEETING VENUE Palazzo Re Enzo Piazza Maggiore - Bologna Italy Located in the centre of Bologna on one of the most beautiful squares in the world, Palazzo Re Enzo combines the majestic beauty and fascinating of an ancient building with the best in modern facilities. Palazzo Re Enzo was built in 1200 to house the Bologna Curia. Down the centuries it has been a seat of justice under the City State, the residence of the podestà, or city governor and of the Captain of the People. It takes its name, Re Enzo, from the medieval king who was imprisoned there from 1249 to Enzo, King of Sardinia, the natural son of Federick II of Sicily, was captured by the Bolognese at the battle of Fossalta. He was kept in the fortress until his death in The story goes that his imprisonment was worthy of a king, however, and that Enzo spent many pleasant hours in the company of nobles reading poetry and enjoying the finer things of life. After his death, the palace was given his name in honour of its illustrious guest.
