Ravenna: One of the Most Fascinating Cities of Italy

The city was actually the last capital of the Western Roman Empire and it retains many unique remains of its glorious imperial past as a Byzantine city where emperors once reigned in glorious splendor.

But today Ravenna is also the most important oil and gas industrial center in the whole Mediterranean.

Culture and technology are the hallmarks of this modern-ancient city that now, every two years since 1993 acts as host to the Offshore Mediterranean Conference. This is an event that has contributed to the town’s growing reputation as an important location for hearing about the latest technological developments, making contacts and, in general, doing business in the offshore petroleum industry.
