The Jubilees have marked the path of the Church as milestones and will continue to do so in the future. As has happened on the occasion of all Holy Years, the Jubilee of 2025 will also be an important event not only for the strictly religious and spiritual aspects, but also from an organisational, urban and cultural point of view. Rome is preparing it self in this sense with significant interventions aimed at improving the quality of the infrastructures, the visitor facilities and the cultural and the tourist offer, also thanks to the measures envisaged by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (P.N.R.R.) with the funds from the European Community "Next Generation Eu" allocated following the COVID-19 pandemic. But what was the organizational machine behind an event of this magnitude? What are the goals of the event? What are the necessary resources, the type of governance and the most effective communication tools? To answer these questions, the author interviewed in Rome on 2 March 2023 Francesco Rutelli, former Mayor of Rome who coordinated, as Extraordinary Commissioner, the Ordinary Jubilee of 2000 and on 28 March 2023 Mons. Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, delegated by Pope Francis to organize the Ordinary Jubilee of 2025. Through these interviews, the key aspects of the management culture of an event of great spiritual and social importance as the Jubilee were explored, examining the case of the Great Jubilee of 2000 and the first organizational efforts of the Jubilee of 2025.

Keywords: Jubilee, Event Management, Social change, Communication, Organization, Rome.
