The Welcome Reception of the conference will take place at 6pm on Sunday October 1, 2023 at the Arsenali Centre of Chania (i.e., Grand Arsenal) situated in the centre of the Old Venetian Port of Chania. It is one of the most impressive monuments at the Old Port of Chania.
The Arsenali Centre of Mediterranean Architecture, in short K.A.M, is an institution administered by the Municipality of Chania. It is housed in a magnificent building called Megalo Neorio, alias Arsenali, which was constructed in 1585 by the Venetians. It had been used as the school of the Christian community in the late 19th century and hosted numerous theater performances (1892), the public hospital (1923) and the Chania Town Hall (1928 – 1941).
Today it has been renovated completely and turned into a stunning space for events and exhibitions.
