15th Annual III Conference, Naples, Italy
The International Insolvency Institute will present its Fifteenth Annual Conference in Naples, Italy on June 15 and 16,
2015. The III Naples Conference will feature reports and analyses of the most important current international insolvency
issues and controversies described by speakers who are recognized as preeminent in their field from countries around the
Our Fifteenth Annual Conference will be held in the Castel dell’Ovo. This famous castle was built on Megaris, a small
island off the shore of Naples. Castel dell'Ovo is thought to be the site of the first Ancient Greek settlement of Parthenope
and is thus the oldest part of Naples and inhabited perhaps as early as the 8th century BC, before Parthenope spread
northwards, and before Neapolis, the "new city", was founded. In the 9th century, the island was turned into a fortified
castle, Napoli's oldest, which successive rulers continued to alter and reinforce until we were left with what we see today.
The III Legendary Dinner will be held on the evening of Monday, June 15 at the historical Museo de Capodimonte. The
museum is the prime repository of Neapolitan painting and decorative art, with several important works from other Italian
schools of painting, and some important ancient Roman sculptures. The vast collection can trace its origins back to 1738,
when King Charles VII of Naples and Sicily (later Charles III, king of Spain) decided to build a hunting lodge on the
Capodimonte hill, but then decided that he would instead build a grand palace.
The Conference Hotels will be the Deluxe 5 Star Hotel, Grand Hotel Vesuvio and the historic 4 Star Luxury Hotel
Excelsior. The Hotel Vesuvio (http://www.vesuvio.it/en
) has been the Neapolitan home for celebrities and travellers from
all over the world and only a few steps from the Royal Palace, Plebiscito Square and the San Carlo Theatre. The Hotel
splendid rooms with panoramic views of the Gulf of Naples. The roof-garden restaurant "La Terrazza" offers excellent
cuisine with a breathtaking view.
