    Professionals and entrepreneurs with multiple years of experience, in professional services such as in the field of technology, media, finance, real estate, architecture, etc, are strongly encouraged to apply. Professional artists, writers, musicians, scientists, and academics in general are also encouraged to apply. The goal of this program is to bring high professionals to live and experience the way of life of Sardinia, in exchange for a knowledge share in the form of contribution from the guest in the form of lectures, presentations, or projects.

    The guest's contribution can be in the form of a public presentation, lectures or lessons, about the guest’s skills and background.
