Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Congress Centre and Hotel is a 17th-century building complex, nestled at the edge of the scenic Parco Nord in Milan, and once belonged to Milan's most illustrious families. It is close to the new M5 Purple metro line that connects the venue with the rest of the city. Villa Torretta has been exclusively reserved to host the EDA Congress in its entirety, with its modern auditorium, parallel meeting rooms, fine restaurant, and many rooms for delegates who wish to share their experiences with their peers - full immersion in delirium.

The award-winning dining facilities of Villa Torretta will make it an ideal and convenient location for the EDA welcome dinner on the 2nd November and the EDA congress dinner on the 3rd November.
