7 Monday

Archaelogist for a day - TOUR 08:30 - 17:00

According to the legend, Ancus Marcius king of Rome, founded Ostia in 620 BC as a crucial spot to make use of the salt pans at the mouth of the Tiber.

The oldest archaeological remains however, date back much later, to the second half of the 4th century BC, and belong to an armed camp (Lat. castrum) built in tufa blocks: it was built by roman settlers to protect the river’s mouth and the Lazio coast.

The European Commission awarded the European Heritage Label to Archaeological Area of Ostia antica

With Rome’s expansion it came to control all Mediterranean trade routes (2nd century BC), and Ostia lost its military role in order to become Rome’s major port and trading center (Lat. emporium).

In our tour we will discover this amazing site, out of usual Roman touristic tracks, and we will have also an archaelogical “dig” experience. 2h of simulated excavation led by professional archaelogists.

We reserve the right to change the tour program due to operational needs

Happy hour 19:00- 21:00

Feel free to join and taste some Roman drinks in this happy hour. We will meet directly at the location. Reservation is preferred to be sure to have available seats in the location.

Museo Nazionale Romano - TOUR 08:30 - 17:00

The National Roman Museum has as its mission the acquisition, conservation enhancement and use of a unique cultural heritage in the world.

This exceptional testimony of the past is promoted and developed by the National Roman Museum, projecting the sense of historical continuity into the future.

In this tour we will visit 3 major sites of the Roman history: the bath of Diocletian, Palazzo Massimo and Palazzo Altemps.

The bath of Diocletian and the Charterhouse of Santa Maria degli Angeli are a unique monumental complex because of their size and exceptional state of preservation.

Inspired by the magnificent palaces of the 16th century, Palazzo Massimo contains some of the greatest masterpieces of the entire artistic output of the Roman world: sculptures, reliefs, frescos, mosaics, stuccoes and sarcophagi, originating.

The Palazzo Altemps is home to absolute masterpieces of ancient sculpture from famous and highly prestigious noble collections now owned by the Italian Government.

We use selected tracks to create a flow, so you don’t have to worry about attending a lot of boring sessions without any direction, or sit through a lot of speakers’ personal self-promotion.

The main subject for the conference this year will be “Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost FileMaker database“.

In Rome, the city that hosts the conference, the past is always there and helps the future to be stronger and safer. In fact we need to be ready for the future, because future is now!

This year the international conference will be held in the magnificent Palazzo Falletti Guardavalle, a fancy noble palace located in Rione Monti, very central neighboorhood in the historic heart of Rome. Palazzo Falletti location is very strategic: it is a few steps from the Stazione Termini, Cavour and Colosseum metro stations, in the shadow of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Testimonial

Past editions of Rome FileMaker Week

At first we doubted whether to participate live or in streaming, then we couldn’t move and the decision was taken. CONGRATS! Perfect direction, the translation into our language was of great help to us. It was really like being there with the team and all participants.

Jasmine K.

What a project, too bad we couldn’t make it going to Rome, so decided to follow the streaming of the RFW23 – Superb Job! Just staying at our workplace we could join some top level contents at an extraordinary price no hassle!

Jack B.

You never feel pampered in a business conference, but here, in the superbe Rome and with such a team… I had a fantastic experience and feel enriched by all that. Thank you FMGuru

Kevin F.

Never thought that a streamed conference would have been so enjoiable, plus they have three channels for different languages, isn’t that Crazy? I love them! Go FMGuru GO!!!

Oliver K.

A unique experience, with our team we experienced a true full immersion in Roman culture and FileMaker. It was a great inspiration to be at RFW both for the networking and for the look at the technologies of the future. We will certainly be back next year!
