LPM 2015 Rome takes place in several locations, to strengthen the connection with the city after the foreign editions of the past two years.

After the successful edition of 2011, LPM is back again at Nuovo Cinema Aquila, a multi-purpose cultural space dedicated to cinema and performing arts, run by a social cooperative and returned to the city after the recent renovation sponsored by the Municipality.
Thanks to the collaboration with the students of Sapienza University collectives, some of the workshops and panels are featured in dedicated areas of the University as the big final party which will takes place during La Notte Bianca della Sapienza, an open air festival fully self­managed and self­financed by the students collectives of all the faculties which takes place in the streets and squares of the campus. After seven editions the festival has become a very important event which involves more than 15.000 people.

In addition to the Meeting, LPM present the second Artistic Residency at Palazzo Chigi in the City of Formello (RM), produced with the assistance of the Province of Rome, the cofunding of Regione Lazio Assessorato Cultura e Politiche giovanili and the collaboration of the City of Formello.
