For the volunteer all the costs (travel from – and to Italy, possible internal movements, language course, board and lodging) are covered by the co-financing supplied by the european commission in the Erasmus+ project’ field.

The volunteer is not remunerated, but he get weekly or monthly an amount of money for his personal expenses(pocket money) depending on the host country.
