On 18-25 October 2008 a study trip to Italy was organised. The central theme of the training was “Amendments to investment process regulations”. The training was organised by the Chamber of Construction Designing. Inter alia the following topics were discussed: amendments to the Act on Spatial Planning and Development, to the Building Law, and to the Public Procurement Act. The above-mentioned training themes were moderated over by dr inż. Aleksander Krupa, mgr inż. Jan T. Kosiedowski, and mgr inż. Marek Wcisło.
Additionally, a meeting took place with representatives of the Italian designing and construction sector.

The trip programme also covered sightseeing in such cities as Venice, Florence, Orvieto, Rome, Assisi, and San Marino, where we could admire the unique architectural monuments. We participated in an audience with the Holy Father Pope, and we laid flowers and paid tribute to the killed soldiers at the Monte Cassino graveyard.
