The conference will take place at Palazzo Manganelli, Catania, an ancient and aristocratic building located in the historical center of Catania.
The Social Event will take place on May 3 evening at 6.45 pm. The event will include a bus tour from Catania city center to Acicastello and Acitrezza, two small towns close to Catania, which still keep their original atmosphere of fisherman villages, as described in the famous novel The Malavoglia by Giovanni Verga. In Acitrezza we will stop for a short walk. Then, attendants will be driven to Grand Hotel Baia Verde, a nice hotel built on the lavic cliffs of the Catania seaside, and the dinner will take place there.
