COVID-19 Emergency: check for program updates!


The 2020 calendar is undergoing some changes due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy. Some schools have been postponed or cancelled, some schools will be held online!

More than 100 schools have been held so far at the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies.

Important! For all school speakers and attendees!


We have learned that third part companies are contacting school speakers and attendees offering to make travel arrangements (hotel and flight booking) on our behalf and asking for credit card details in order to proceed. PLEASE NOTE these agencies are not authorized by us, this is most likely a fraud.
