Gala Dinner and Awards

Thursday 8th September 2022

This years Gala Dinner will be held at Ristorante Al Forte Verona.

The venue is a renovated Austrian Fort dating back to 1860, Ristorante Al Forte is situated in Pastrengo, a historic village already renowned for other historical battles, in a hilly area between Verona and Lake Garda, just one kilometre from Lazise

The building was built between 1859 and 1861 to meet the dual need to protect Verona and the communication routes with Austria through the Val d'Adige. The location was strategic as the hill overlooks not only the city of Verona and the Atesina valley but also the entire southern stretch of Lake Garda, Monte Baldo and the hills of the Garda area. The fort was once armed with fifteen canons and guarded by about eighty men. Although renovated in recent years, it has fully retained its original structures and characteristics and now houses Ristorante Al Forte.

The conference Gala Dinner will take place on the evening of 08 September 2022 for those with Full Registration or who have purchased a ticket

Price: €80 per person / Timing: TBC
