Ravenna has a strategic position as bridge between North and South. The development of an important oil & gas district starting from 1960 have secured the city with an international reputation as the centre of the Mediterranean oil and gas industry.
This made Ravenna the ideal venue for the Offshore Mediterranean Conference and Exhibition.

Ravenna and the whole Romagna region are ideal for a short break at any time of the year and offer  everything necessary to make every leisure or business trip something to remember: sightseeing, nightlife, modern facilities, excellent cuisine.
As well as being one of the most important oil and gas cities in the Mediterranean, Ravenna is rich of monuments and mosaics from its glorious imperial past, 8 of which are listed as UNESCO world heritage.

For centuries Ravenna was the privileged meeting point of East and West, of Byzantium and Rome, continental populations and Mediterranean traditions. The port of Ravenna is still one of the most important at European level, just like it was in Roman times (port of Classe built under Emperor Octavianus Augustus.)

Outstanding characters of European culture such as Lord Byron and Gustav Klimt have visited and spent important parts of their lives in Ravenna or even taken refuge here, as in the case of Dante.

Ravenna province offers culture and business opportunities but also long beaches with exciting sport facilities, bustling bars, modern spa resorts, golf courses, relaxing pinewoods, rolling hills with vineyards and charming small villages.
