Location:

University of Catania, Department of Business and Economics, 
Corso Italia, 55 – 95129 Catania, Italy

The RDW will be held in the premises of the Department of Economics and Business of the University of Catania, Corso Italia 55, 95129 Catania, Italy. The Department of Economics and Business of the University of Catania compound is located in the new city center about fifteen minutes away from Catania Airport in beautiful Sicily. The Catania airport provides direct service to a number of European destinations and frequent connecting flights to the major airports of entry for international and overseas flights (e.g., Milan, Rome and Munich airports).

Participants will be housed in neighbouring hotels (Grand Hotel Excelsior, Jolly Hotel Bellini, Katane Hotel), located within walking distance from the School with attractive room rates Those who wish to extend their stay before or after the RDW will benefit from the School’s location in the Eastern part of the island of Sicily, in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Nearby holiday destinations include spectacular Taormina, the Magna Grecia town of Syracuse (with the magnificent Ortigia island and its mythical Aretusa spring), the city of Messina with the wonderful Eolie Islands archipelagos, as well as Palermo, Ragusa and Agrigento.

The wonderful strength of Etna, the snow-covered peaks, the crystal clear sea of the Ionian coast, the historical and archaeological heritage, the baroque churches and palaces, the enogastronomic traditions and music, the innate warmth and hospitality culture of the people, welcome tourists in every season. Fire, water, and light meet, mingle and intertwine to give the visitor a unique spectacle. Catania offers a scenario that has attracted tourists and travelers for centuries. A strip of land where nature mixes colours in an embrace that wraps up little bays and paths that are imbued with the fragrance of muscat wine, in a continuous succession of cliffs and creeks that become fields and then valleys, almond trees covered with white flowers, red woods of beech and silver birch.
