From the 27th to the 30th of December 2017, the 5th edition of  Chess Festival of the Mediterranean will be held.
After a few years break back Palermo's most important chess event with many new features:
New date, no longer in summer but during Christmas holidays.
New location in the heart of Palermo's historic center at the Monumental Complex of Steri, one of the city's main tourist attractions.
New formula, 6 rounds in four days.

So many new things that we hope can promote a massive participation of Palermo, Sicilian, Italian and foreign players.
