The Experiences

Are you organizing a trip to Palermo, and you are want an unforgettable experience follow our advice.

For an experience between Art, Music and good cuisine headed by Santo Vitale, you can take part in our drum circle or in our musical instruments craft lab.
If you’re a group you can be part of our art music-lab, where instruments are crafted using recycled materials and the finished products are then played by everyone together in a circle.
Our facilitator will simply guide you on a musical trip, taking you from an initial chaotic rhythm to composing a masterpiece by a grand orchestra.
