The history of the Farm Cultural Park in Favara

The seven courtyards

The Farm Cultural Park of Favara was conceived in response to a tragic event for the municipality of Agrigento: on January 23, 2010, the collapse of an old building broke the lives of two young inhabitants of the town.
Andrea Bartoli and Florinda Saieva, two fellow citizens who have traveled extensively between Paris, London and their native Sicily, decide to react to this misfortune by creating a reality that could make Favara flourish thanks to art and culture. Not a simple urban redevelopment, therefore, but the realization of a dream. In the then decadent area of ​​the "Seven Courtyards", the Farm Cultural Park project kicks off, a cultural tourist park accessible to all, created with the participation of the inhabitants of the area affected by the building abandonment.
