Società Italiana Gallerie (SIG) welcomes you to the World Tunnel Congress and ITA – AITES General Assembly in Naples, Italy.

Don’t miss out on an opportunity to add this memorable event to your calendar from May 3rd to May 9th 2019!

WTC 2019 will be held in a spectacular venue, the famous “Mostra D’Oltremare”, one of the main conference hubs in Italy.  Its size, architectural features and services  make it a large multi-purpose centre with the ability to host congress rooms and an exhibition in the same area.

Combining a unique location and a great city that is fully representative of the ‘Italian lifestyle' with archeology, architecture, art, touristic attractions and of course, tunnelling. Not to mention,  important underground works built recently in a unique and complex geology, giving impressive examples of how important and attractive underground works were built.  The Toledo Metro Station on Line 1, received the 2015 ITA award for  “Innovative Use of Underground Space”.  It is a unique example of a decentralized museum, offering dynamic fruition of artists’ creations, with an opportunity for citizens to travel an open artistic route.

SIG expresses its support, enthusiasm and strong willingness to host the WTC 2019 in Naples, as well as, city authorities who will be honoured and will do their utmost best, to ensure  the delegates’ expectations.
