If anyone is wondering about the venue that Maria has proposed (Aula 
Magna), I found a page on it, in Italian 
(http://www.como.polimi.it/links/aulamagna/), but I will paste the 
google-translated text below.  -jeff

I saw that this could be the best period with respect to other events in Europe (and not only in Europe)  and we have no other events also in Como (and therefore I'm able to book the Aula Magna - as a matter of fact already booked).
