Meeting space in Esino Lario

The Esino Lario city council is the major stakeholder of the venues and it has already expressed its support to the event. The other owners have already been approached; we have the confirmation for Meeting, Montecodeno and Ex-Albergo Italia. We have approached and involved one of the primary school teacher who supports the event and in case of confirmation of the event we will make an official request to the Istituto Comprensivo Bellano (which manages the building) to book and confirm the use (we do not expect specific problems; there are normally no problems in using the building of the Primary School for activities and the event will take place not during the school year[1]).

Meeting space in Varenna: Villa Monastero

We have booked Villa Monastero in Varenna; we made a pre-booking confirmed by email by the managers because Villa Monastero is a venue also for a major annual conference in physics and we need to negotiate as easy as possible the availability for Wikimania Esino Lario; Villa Monastero is available for Wikimania Esino Lario: conference rooms 21-26 June 2016, plus 7 double rooms and 4 single rooms arrival between June 21st and June 25th with departure Sunday June 26th (it is not possible to sleep in Villa Monastero Sunday 26 June because of the other event); 1 double room is also available but with departure Saturday June 24th.
