Passport and visa
Italy is part of the European Union (EU) and of the Schengen Area.
To enter the country, EU citizens must have a valid national ID card. Non- EU citizens need a passport valid for at least six months beyond the length of stay. A visa may be required in some cases.

First Aid and Emergency
Our staff will be available to solve any problem which may occur during the workshop. However, you can directly contact the medical emergency number (118) and the Police number (113).
The registration fee DOES NOT include provisions for the insurance of participants against personal injuries or loss that might occur during the event or in the course of travel to or from the meeting site.
The Mediterranean climate and the proximity to the sea allow the mild weather in autumn in Italy. Thus the climate is generally quite pleasant in Livorno during this season of the year. The temperature varies from a minimum of 10°C to a maximum of 22°C
Bank, currency and credit cards
Italian currency is the Euro.
