Situated in the heart of Rome, the Centro Congressi Roma Eventi – Fontana di Trevi is located inside the splendid building that hosts the Pontifical Gregorian University and the library of the same name with its exceptional collection of precious books. Founded in 1551 by Ignazio Loyola, the “School of grammar, humanity and Christian doctrine” found its permanent home here, after having been moved around Rome. As early as 1581, Pope Gregory XIII was committed to finding a suitable home for the School and he commissioned the architect Bartolomeo Ammannati to construct the great building, which was inaugurated on 28 October 1584. For this reason, the pope was hailed as the “founder and father” of the Roman College that took the name of Gregorian University. In 1873, however, the building was confiscated by the Italian Government, forcing the university to be divided. After the First World War, there was once again strong interest in providing the University with a new and permanent residence.
