Welcome to Beautiful Rome Host of
The International Awards for Liveable Communities 2019

Rome is the capital city of Italy. It is also the country's most populated comune. It is the fourth most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. It is the centre of the Metropolitan City of Rome, making it the most populous metropolitan city in Italy. It has a history that spans 28 centuries. The city successively became the capital of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, and is regarded by some as the first ever metropolis.

Rome has the status of a global city. In 2016, Rome ranked as the 14th-most-visited city in the world, 3rd most visited in the European Union, and the most popular tourist attraction in Italy. Its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Rome is the seat of several specialized agencies of the United Nations, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Rome is also an important fashion and design centre thanks to renowned international brands centered in the city.

The Finals of the International Awards for Liveable Communities 2019 will be held in this beautiful and culturally diverse city of Rome, an Italian city where for the first time LivCom Finals are held. More importantly, the Municipal Government of Rome is enthusiastically looking forward to your arrival. Together with candidates from around the world, we will share best practices and experience for building livable cities and implementing Sustainable Development Goals.
