The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, commonly known as the Angelicum, is the Dominican university of Rome and one of the major pontifical universities of the City.
Staffed and administered by members of the Order of Preachers, it serves as a locus for the Dominican theological tradition among the Roman pontifical universities.
Because of its inimitable historical and aesthetic characteristics, its unique location and its purpose as an international venue, the Angelicum is a natural choice for high profile events.
It has received Popes, Presidents and heads of State, and has hosted scientific, cultural, political and economic events og global importance. The complex houses 15 rooms, capable of holding between 30 and 150 people, facing a cloister of the 16th century with a garden and fountain, and a semi-circular hall with theatre-style seating for 325 and with a principal auditorium, also with theatre style seating and a capacity of 1100.
The Angelicum is located quite close to the most important places of interest of Rome: the Colosseum, Imperial Fora, Trevi Fountain, Campidoglio, as you can see in the following map.
