One month in Biccari – 2020 Edition
Following the successful 2019 Edition, with around 600 applicants from all over Europe, the “One Month in Biccari” contest is back!
Four young people (between the ages of 18 and 35) will have the chance to be hosted – free of charge – in the town of Biccari for the whole month of August 2020 in return for three hours of volunteering per day at the Adventure Park or Cooperativa di Comunità.
The selected guests will become “temporary citizens” of Biccari and dive into the local culture, learn Italian, and engage with the local community while discovering local food producers and delicacies.
