The Workshop will take place at “Hotel Basiliani Resort” in Otranto:

The Basiliani Resort is located in Otranto, a famous tourist resort in the far eastern edge of the Italian peninsula named Salento (Puglia). The city, thanks to its geographical location, is a natural gateway between Western and Eastern civilizations, and represented, since antiquity, the point of connection and integration of socio-cultural and artistic experiences for ethnic groups from different backgrounds.
The Hotel lies behind the city, in the heart of the fertile valley of Memories, a witness of civilization, art and culture which brings the history of Otranto beyond its walls. A pleasant and unique spell welcomes body and spirit. Amid odors of olive and oleander thirsty you breathe the well-being to keep yourself amused between thermal treatments and pleasures of the soul. Therefore synergy of the nature and human creation give you harmony multisensory.
