Accommodation and Facilities

Speakers and partecipants are housed in the dormitory of the old monasteries (San Francesco, San Domenico, San Rocco). Our staff will do their best to make your stay enjoyable. Each room may host 1 or 2 beds. All rooms have private bathrooms and showers. In case young participants may be kindly requested to share their rooms.

It is a deliberate policy of the EMFCSC to help the local economy. The expansion of our living quarters has been accordingly tuned: thus often it happens that participants are also lodged in hotels, either because a course is too numerous or because there are parallel activities encouraged in order to establish interdisciplinary links.

There is a "coffee room" in the I.I. Rabi Institute (in the back of the courtyard on the right‑hand side under the staircase) where coffee, tea, mineral water and snacks are available (free) at any time. This "coffee room" is also used for breakfast.

There is a "piano room" (the small central room under the arches at the back of the courtyard at the I.I. Rabi Institute) with a keg of Marsala wine (free). This "piano room" can also be used for working parties. The "piano room" must be closed before midnight.

The Centre has two washing machines and two dryers for use by the participants (at the rear of the courtyard at the I.I. Rabi Institute).

The computer room is located off the left‑hand side of the I.I. Rabi courtyard.
