Tickets are available online two weeks before the event. One-day tickets and five-day passes are both under $10. Kids go free. The event is open until around 10 pm or midnight each evening.
Turin is easily accessed by plane, with flights from all over the world. You can also fly to nearby Milan for a spot of tourism before heading to the Italian city. Once there, travel around the city is simple; buses, a metro system and taxis are all reasonably cheap.
Turin, like most big cities, has an abundance of hostels and low-cost hotels, plus high-end establishments should you wish to spend a bit more. Hotel Dock Milano and Hotel Poletecnico are among the better budget places to stay.
Note that the workshops cost extra and mostly require pre-registration.
Follow Paratissima's Twitter if you would like to participate as a creator. The call for artist applications is typically open from May to July.
