SUR – 2022, September 22nd / 25th

sur-2020-encuentro milonguero

Hi everyone, are you ready to come to SUR?

In september we will follow the long summer of Southern Italy and we will reach SICILY, land of enchantment, myths and beauty.
From Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th I’ll be waiting for you in SUR, don't make any plans!

Catania will welcome us with its beauty and our Encuentro milonguero with its hugs.

Once again, I have chosen the venue of the event in a HISTORIC CENTRE, but this is somehow special: Catania lies at the foot of an active volcano, Etna. Here you can feel the energy of nature in your body and breathe it in the air.
Thus we will enjoy days shrouded by a totally Sicilian and of course charming atmosphere for people loving the intensity of the ancient and noble Mediterranean beauty, made of culture, contrasts and traditions, bright colours, amazing perfumes, satisfying flavours. We will visit museums, markets and small shops of young artists and old artisans. We will be walking discovering monuments, squares, boulevards, alleys and gardens: the baroque of its historic centre in 2002 was declared World Heritage by UNESCO, along with the one of seven towns of Val di Noto (Caltagirone, Militello in Val di Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo Acreide, Ragusa and Scicli).

Then as an alternative, we will have the sea in front of our house – historical lidos or long sandy beaches – on the one side the sea on the other one the volcano, for both dive and relax before the beginning of the milonga!
