Ustica

The Meeting will be held in Ustica (Palermo, Italy).

Ustica is a small island off the north coast of Sicily (52 kilometres north of Capo Gallo, in the Tyrrhenian Sea), reached by ferries from Palermo. The tip of an ancient, extinct volcano, its black rocky slopes and plateaus are now covered in green vegetation and spring flowers.

Ustica is particularly known for scuba diving, with a number of diving schools established on the island. Recreational divers are attracted by the relatively deep dives, which are a feature of the island's volcanic geology.

The shoreline is littered with dramatic grottoes and the surrounding waters – protected within Area Marina Protetta Isola di Ustica (Island of Ustica Protected Marine Area) – are kept sparklingly clean by an Atlantic current and are thus replete with fish and coral.
