The workshop will be held in Madrid, Spain during the 4th-6th November, 2013.

Madrid is the capital of Spain since 1562 ant it is also the geographical center of the Iberian Peninsula. It ows its name to Metragirta goddes, also known as Cibeles, daughter of Saturno and symbol of the Earth's fertility.

Madrid is certainly a city of great and impressive monuments, with a very peculiar historical center, built in the time of the Habsburg dynasty that reigned in Spain and of course, the Prado Museum, one of the most important art galleries in the world.

Although only for its cultural wealth it worths a visit, Madrid is also exceptionally lively. His glittering nightlife, with many bars, café-theaters and nightclubs open late into the morning, provide the city with worldwide fame.
