Book a space at Artèmisia
The city administration gives citizens, associations, public and private bodies the opportunity to use the following spaces at Artemisia: Sala Pardi and Corte Mattaccio.
Sala Pardi is packed with books and journals, has a wonderful view of the green area surrounding Artèmisia, and for these reasons it is one of the most requested and versatile spaces of the complex. It can be booked for meetings, conferences, and book presentations.
Corte Mattaccio is located in the external area of Artemisia, and its strengths are the quiet and the simplicity. It is perfect during the warmest months of the year. The area can be used for social, cultural, and sport events.
