"Corte di Arenaro" is a typical Rome farmhouse, immersed in a vast pine forest, caressed by a sea breeze, a few kilometres from the city, and really near to Fiumicino airport. It dates back to the beginning of the last century, when land reclamation began in the area of Lazio. Hundreds of workers were involved in digging, ploughing and sowing land that had never been fertile. Farmhouses were then built to accomodate the new "pioneers" and their families.
These new areas were a challenge for many architets, including Michele Busiri Vici, who designed the centre of Arenaro, so called because of the large quantity of sandstone found there.
In 1946, the initial project was extended, by one of the most famous Italian architets, Pierluigi Nervi, to the construction of a very unusal hall, really original in terms of form, size and volume: an area of 600 sqm, with a single covering which, without colums, traces a series of circular lines. Today, this space can receive 700 people seated in a single area and, thanks to its sheer volume and absence of architectural barriers, is often used for new car launches, conventions with team buildings activities, gala dinner and expositions. Near by this huge hall we can find 4 breakout rooms, often used for smaller groups. These rooms are called: Sala della Specchiera, Ala della Pineta, Salotto oro e Salotto porpora. And a big Casale, more rustic and familiar, used for catering in case of rain.
Also available are a further five rooms, outdoor spaces for buffets and cocktail receptions (Corte and gardens), a vaste parking area which can receive pullmann and private cars and well-equipped kitchens.
