The School will be hosted by Hotel Village Baia Samuele, Scicli, (RG),
Sicily:            http://www.baiasamuele.it/
Scicli  is one the Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto in the
South-Eastern Sicily. The Val di Noto area is included in the UNESCO
World Heritage List  http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1024/documents/

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily: Caltagirone, Militello Val di
Catania,  Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli, were
all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the
earthquake which took place in that year.  They represent a
considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a
high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within
the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive
innovations in town planning and urban building.
