festival volunteers to reside in 18th-century splendour

All selected 2012 festival volunteers will stay in the 90-bed youth hostel in the historic town centre of Perugia (map). The youth hostel is a fine 18th-century building with a library, free Wi-Fi in the comunal area, a large kitchen and dining room for use by the volunteers and a balcony offering a stunning panoramic view over old Perugia (photos).

Volunteers will be able to reach in 5 minutes on foot all festival events and venues. Hostel accommodation is provided free by the festival organisation to all selected volunteers.
