NATO M&S COE LOCATION AND CONTACTS
The NATO M&S COE is located in the southern outskirts of Rome, inside the so called Città Militare Cecchignola (Cecchignola Military Compound) which lies alongside Via Laurentina, in the Italian Army Barracks "Adriano De Cicco" - the same building housing the Italian Defence General Staff C4I & Transformation Department (SMD VI Reparto) and the Italian Defence General Staff Centre for Defence Innovation (Centro Innovazione Difesa - CID).
