Welcoming words at the Atelier

Mama Shelter prepared a private room for the event, or as they call it: their Atelier. Benjamin El Doghaïli, head of Mama’s Design Studio, designed the atelier. He added his magic once again. Suppose you ask us, it's a perfect space for new ideas. When it’s time for a break, there is foosball, and Mama Shelter will take care of you with some Italian drinks and food.

At 16:00 the doors are open! Congratulazioni, You just arrived at the first international MODX Meet-up in Rome. You might see new or familiar faces, and start socializing while enjoying Italian drinks and snacks.

At 16:30 Annalisa will officially welcome you. She is the CEO of the Rome-based MODX agency Relactions, and this is her first time organizing and attending a MODX Meet-up. 


Aperitivo time at the Atelier

Italian-style; if you have ever visited Italy before you know that between 18:00 and 20:00, just before dinner, it is aperitivo time. An aperitivo is a drink and a small bite before dinner. This is an idyllic way to catch up between talks with like-minded people and have time to proses all the information. 

Suggestion: Try a refreshing spritz, an Italian cocktail made with chilled prosecco, Aperol, and a fresh orange wedge.

Rooftop Dinner

At approximately 20:15 we'll finish the last talk. Annalisa will tell you her experience on all the amazing talks, and great people she met. What did she think of her first MODX Meet-up? Is this the first of more to come? 

The event is not over jet. Most Italians eat their dinner between 20:00 and 22:00, and so are we. We'll have time to sit down together and socialize on the roof terrace while the staff of Mama Shelter serve us an Italian-style dinner.



You will get a drink from us, and the roof terrace will open until after midnight. So enjoy a warm autumn evening and amaze the view with our favourite Italian cocktail. Not in for a cocktail order vinoor, or birra . There will be music, arouse yourself with great people and vivere Roma.
