Background:
After two successful online editions, we are excited to announce that State of the Map 2022 will take place in-person in Firenze, Italy on August 19-21, as well as online!

SotM 2022 will be a 3-day hybrid conference making it possible to take part in the annual global celebration of OpenStreetMap either in-person or online, or both.

The conference will take place before the FOSS4G 2022 conference, which is also in Firenze on August 22 to 28, 2022. The local team is committed to providing participants with a safe conference environment in accordance with the latest safety and health guidelines set by authorities.

See you in Firenze in August!

How can I get to the conference avoiding the FFP2 mask requirement on Italian public transport?

Assuming that a flight doesn’t count as “Italian public transport” then it looks walkable from there: https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=graphhopper_foot&route=43.8021%2C11.2013%3B43.8016%2C11.2453#map=14/43.7992/11.2233 :slight_smile:
