An international conference on the Global Standard, one of the prestigious initiatives promoted by the Italian Presidency of G8, is to be held on Tuesday, 12 May at Villa Madama.
The event - one which will be closed to the press - is to be organised by Minister of the Economy and Finance Giulio Tremonti, and will be attended by a select group of academics and important figures from all over the world.
A press conference is scheduled to take place at the end of the meeting at around 17.30.
The organisers advise those wishing to attend the press conference to submit their request for accreditation together with personal details (name, surname, date and place of birth) and professional credentials by 13.00 on Monday, 11 May to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accredited journalists, photographers and camera operators are asked to report to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs - at the Via Macchia della Farnesina entrance - from 15.30 onwards.
As there is no access to Villa Madama for private vehicles, a shuttle service between the Ministry and Villa Madama will be laid on from 15.30 until the conclusion of the event.
