  • Be immersed in the first territory in Sicily that has been fully mapped with 184 archaeological sites (

  • Understand the degree of conservation of the archaeological heritage of an entire municipality and have a better definition of the vocation and the dating of the sites.

  • Stay at KISS, our newly renovated headquarters ( which is a permanent site of archaeological research and teaching. The center was vandalized but has been transformed with modern facilities, including: dormitories, a game library with over 100 board and card games, an education center for soft skills, as well as a kitchen and bar.
