A very interesting series of workshops on Private International Law has been launched by the Department of Law of the University of Ferrara: Seminari estensi di diritto internazionale privato (Ferrara Workshops on Private International Law). The first two events, which will be hosted in the coming weeks, will take the form of a colloquium (in English) between an invited speaker and a discussant, ended by concluding remarks  by a third scholar. Here’s the programme:
