For the players who subscribed for the Championship a camping area is organized, the “Wild and Seek Camping” where it is possible to park the campers and build the tents.
Consonno is a perfect venue for hide and seek. The builder, the Count Mario Bagno, wanted it to be the small “Las Vegas of Brianza”. But in 1977 a landslide interupted the road and isolated the village that became a sort of a ghost town. With a green area of 25 thousand sqm it is the ideal game land for natural hide and seek.
Last year players brought also closets and sofas that can be used as traditionnally kids were using furniture too to find a good way to hide themselves.
