August 18-25, 2010, Palermo, ITALY

 

 

The school takes place at Poggio San Francesco located about 30 kilometres south-west from Palermo (Sicily). In spite of the season and the latitude, the height of Poggio San Francesco (800 meters) ensures a dry climate and comfortable temperatures that range from 20°C to 35°C. We advise to bring a rain coat and a  light jumper because it may rain and in the evening it can be cold.
