SAND19 Italy Venue





July 2nd – July 8th, 2019
Titignano Castle,
Orvieto, Italy

The SAND 2019 Italy Gathering will be held again on the fantastic property of the small medieval village of Titignano. Titignano today is a modern estate surrounded by 2,000 hectares of forest, woods, vineyards and olive groves. Located on the hills between Orvieto and Todi, Castello di Titignano (Castle of Titignano) holds a favorable vista position, dominating the valley below and overlooking the enchanting Lake Corbara. The site offers breathtaking views and an exquisite old-world experience.

The site offers beautiful terraces from which to enjoy the view, and a swimming pool to cool off in the summer.

The Castle hosts about 130 people in 40 rooms throughout. Reservations for staying at the Castle for the event are included in your ticket for all week-long tickets.

There are also camping options at the Castle, either with your own tent/campervan or by renting a tent or teepee from SAND for the event (bedding options available as well for campers). There are two types of tents for rent: a simple 2-person camping tent, or a comfortable canvas 13-ft teepee that sleeps 2-4.
