Mediterranean Opera Studio and Festival operates in the beautiful city of Caltagirone, some 40 miles Southwest of Catania.
Our center is in the INPS facility – Convitto INPS Luigi Sturzo, in Via Delle Industrie #9. The convitto is the Italian equivalent of a university dormitory. We each have a single room with bathroom that is cleaned and taken care of by workers daily. Towels and bedsheets are changed once weekly. Rooms are simply furnished with a single bed, nightstand, desk, and wardrobe. As is the case in many sites throughout Italy, there is no air conditioning in the individual rooms. You are welcome to purchase a fan from the nearby electronics store. We encourage you to avail yourself of cooler evening temperatures by opening the windows for a cross breeze, and closing the roller blinds during the heat of the day.
Take a laundry bag with you as the center has a bi-weekly laundry service.
Breakfast and lunch are served in the cafeteria. Breakfast is typically continental-style, and lunch is Italian-style with primo piatto of pasta and secondo piatto of meat or fish with sides and fruit. Dinner and snacks can be purchased at local supermarkets, pizzerias, or restaurants.
All our rehearsal and performing auditorium spaces are within the structure.
