General Assembly events — 11 September 2009

The Autumn CLGE GA took place in Rome. It was a very succesful event as it saw the accession of Croatia and the Russian Federation as new CLGE members as well as the solemn signature of the Code of Conduct of European Surveyors.

Rome is placed on the banks of the river Tevere. With its hilly shape it includes also the small state of Citta del Vaticano. Important International Bodies, first of all the FAO, have here their headquarters. Rome is a typical metropolis with executive functions of advanced level. Always desired destination of tourists of every social extraction, of religious and young students, Rome has historical districts bounded by old wall, artistic and cultural testimony of its millenary history and of its privilege of centre of Christianity. The incomparable totality of its urban and undulating landscape, soaked in monuments and memories, constitutes the fascination contained in the common noun of “eternal city”.
