During the first two weeks, the volunteers will work on repairing a wall at the foot of the castle, which was rehabilitated last year but which collapsed following this year s heavy rain. The last week will be devoted to the organization of the Serenades (international music festival), logistical assistance: installation of platforms, barriers and refreshment stands, with local volunteers. This camp is a great opportunity to discover both the rich heritage through restoration work but also to get really involved in the cultural life of the village.
