What is necessary


The course can be organised in a place of your choice, that must have the following characteristics: a leveled place, with smooth natural  or well managed grass ground; a sufficient length development, of at least 100 metres (also in circle); more is better. If in a public park, the place must be somewhat apart from crowd..


Comfortatble clothes (no jeans or tight trousers), suitable to the season, in layers, since rather static moments will alternate with very dynamic ones . Shoes with flexible but sculptured sole (semi-rigid hiking shoes are not suitable).


- for private groups: contact me, to agree the organisation; it is necessary to have a contact person for the whole group.
- for operators: booking modalities fro participants are flexible and will be defined by specific agreements between me and the operator.

Indicatively, the course should be booked three weeks in advance. Shorter term bookings are possible in absence of other commitments.


Contact me for costs details, that vary in relation to place and number of participants.
Indicatively, consider a minimum cost of 200 Euros for a standard course, and a minimum cost per person of 25 Euros. Lower price courses (so for  lower number of people) may be possible, in specific circumstances, in the cities of Cesena and La Spezia. For efficacy reasons, the maximum number of participants is 10 (no minimum number, given the above mentioned costs). In case of requests for higher numbers, it will be possible to program additional courses.
