Etna International Chess Festival

The first edition of this event is a collaborative effort between the ‘Chess Centre Aci Castello’ and the Chess Association ‘Friends of the Chess Board’ ("Amici della Scacchiera") of Erice. It aims to become one of the most attractive chess events of Sicily (visit our facebook page). The Festival includes two tournaments:
- Open A, to which both foreign and Italian masters are invited;
- Open B, reserved for lower rated players (see the official flyer).



Venue
The tournaments will be held in air-conditioned and beautifully appointed conference rooms found within the official 4* Biancaneve Hotel situated on the slopes of Mount Etna, on the grounds of a natural park, unique in the world for its beauty and the extraordinary spectacle of the immense volcano eruptions visible in the distance. (see the wonderful video "Mount Etna"
).
