Nils Sartorius, research assistant at the chair, took part in a conference on 'New German-Italian Perspectives' at Palazzo Rondinini in Rome at the end of September. The experts present from academic and institutional fields discussed above all questions on the socio-political and historical development of German-Italian relations. The future-oriented perspective of German-Italian cooperation also played an important role. It was also decided to institutionalise future cooperation within an expert forum.
Within the context of the conference, Nils Sartorius also attended the reception of the German Ambassador, Viktor Elbling, at the Istituto Italiano di Studi Germanici.
One week before the start of the semester, our team came together in full force for a big clean-up campaign under the motto 'Office Beautification'. In the hectic week before the start of the semester, this was a welcome distraction for everyone, which was visibly fun. Our offices shine in new splendour and the evening came to a festive end at the 'Schöneberger' on the lively Berger Straße in Frankfurt's Bornheim district.
