The Dalai Lama in Italy
We are very pleased to announce that His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama has accepted the invitation of Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa of Pomaia and will be in Tuscany from 19 to 21 September 2017. This visit will follow His Holiness’s stop in Sicily from 16 to 18 September, invited by the cities of Messina and Palermo.
The Dalai Lama’s Tuscany visit will initially include a public event in Firenze on 19 September. This initiative is sponsored by the Municipality of Firenze, which has invited the Dalai Lama to the city of Firenze.
On 20 and 21 September the Dalai Lama will be in Pisa where he will participate in a symposium organized by the University of Pisa and Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa together under the terms of the 2016 collaborative agreement between these two entities. This conference will take place at the Centro Congressi (Congress Center) of Pisa and will include speakers of international note and expertise sharing knowledge and insight in the fields of Buddhist philosophy and science, the neurosciences, quantum physics, and Western philosophy. Participation in this conference will be by invitation only.
The event is sponsored by and is under the patronage of the Municipality of Pisa.
