Courses at La Macchina Fissa
La Macchina Fissa is often used as a location for Gardening, Language, Music, Painting, Photography, Theatre, Writing, and Yoga courses. Up to twelve students and two instructors can stay here and make the most of the indoor and outdoor spaces.
How does it work? Teachers bring their students for any length of time, two days to two weeks. If instructors bring five students or more, they can stay for free. Students pay 55 euro per day, like all guests, to cover the cost of all food and accomodation, and instructors charge whatever they want on top of that as a daily free for the lessons.
