IFOSS 2023 will be hosted by Hotel Village Baia Samuele in Punta 
Sampieri - Scicli (Ragusa), Sicily from 16-22 July 2023.
Sicily is one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean. The 
island is very rich in archeological sites from various Ancient 
Civilizations. The sea, weather, food and the wine are excellent. In 
particular Punta Sampieri - Scicli (RG) is located in the south east of 
Sicily in a late Baroque area called Val di Noto. The Val di Noto area 
is included in the Unesco World Heritage List and
includes eight nearby towns: Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, 
Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli.
The location of the school rises in the middle of an ample bay delimited 
on the west from Sampieri and on the east from a cliff, on which is 
founded an ancient furnace, rare example of industrial archaeology. The 
Hotel Village Baia Samuele stretches in a gentle slant to the beach: 120 
thousand square meters delimited from rows of secular cypresses. An 
ultramodern village with an original architecture, pleasant design and 
all comforts you can imagine. The frame of plants and flowers, typical 
of this angle of Sicily, in front of the island of Malta, completes this 
gilded dream of the Mediterranean.
