Vatican City, the smallest country in the world, is located in the very heart of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason Rome has been often defined as capital of two states. Vatican City features some of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures. This meeting will take place in the Gregorian University, which sits in the heart of Rome, but is a part of the Vatican’s City’s Extraterritorial Properties.
