Minerva Arena - Minerva Square
The wide, rectangular layout runs along one of the Cathedral sidewall, where there’s still visible the colonnade of the Doric Temple of Athena, built in the fifth century BC. Syracuse’s heart and parlor, the square turns into an arena during the festival, equipped to the best screening quality performances. This location will be featuring the main sections of the Festival along with meetings with authors, actors, productions and the final awards ceremony.
Logoteta Arena - Logoteta Square
Located at few meters from Minerva Square, in the heart of “La Giudecca”, the jewish neighborhood of the island of Ortygia; the whole area totally pedestrianized for the event and a part of it converted into the arena, this location features showcases, second screenings, meetings, readings and conversations.
Facing Logoteta Arena, Casina Minniti becomes the festival headquarter during the event: info-point, host-center, press-room, marketing & merchandising, guests hangout and the place where the audience can vote.
