  • I always come back again to Agrigento. Certainly for his extraordinary archaeological heritage and landscape, but not only. Going back again because here I find a positive atmosphere, active, collaborative. Thanks to the Park of the Valley of the temples and to DO with the Kolymbethra, and also in many other realities, it is experiencing a phase of change, which is breathing new, fresh area. The Kolymbethra is a paradise, that doesn't stop surprises (and soon there will be a very unique, inspiring, that I was privileged to know: but I can't and I don't want to anticipate before the next inauguration). I again visited with his friend Joseph Lane, protagonist of the recovery and management of Kolymbethra and I brought along some friends and colleagues and they too were surprised, intrigued, impressed with this magical place and love with which it is treated. It is a beautiful story that of the recovery of this Sicilian Garden (which I also told in my book ' Italian heritage is among the Italian cultural heritage management case studies that present to you), and is an even more beautiful the gradual discovery of this place from the people of Agrigento and of tourists (this year there will be over 80,000 visitors). I very much hope that this positive reality will further grow, with new acquisitions and with an even closer collaboration with the Park of the Valley of the temples.
