INCOM2018 will be held in Bergamo, a beautiful city located near Milano in the north of Italy.
The province of Bergamo, situated in the eastern Lombardy region, provides a combination of cultural and artistic history as well as modern developments. The city is divided into two parts: “Città alta” (upper city), a hilltop medieval town, and the “Città bassa” (lower city), where the shopping district is located. The two parts of the city are connected by funicular, roads and footpaths. The old medieval structure is still intact in the city and you can see narrow streets, tall houses with picturesque windows and doors, and often secret passages, within the old Venetian walls. Music plays an important role in Bergamo’s history. The large Romanesque Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore has had a very strong tradition of singing and music teaching for over eight hundred years.
