Farm Cultural Park
The Farm Cultural Park, Favara's urban cultural factory
Hotel Villa Romana presents you the symbol of the rebirth of Favara
The Agrigento area does not only offer classical art places and splendid glimpses of Mediterranean nature. The Farm Cultural Park of Favara, about twenty kilometers from Hotel Villa Romana, is for example a young reality that testifies to how it is possible to enhance a small town thanks to the commitment and ideas of its inhabitants.
A "Cultural Factory", a place for artistic encounters and connections, born with the aim of restoring dignity to the town of Favara and making it a site of interest for cultural tourism, second only to the Valley of the Temples, an authentic symbol of Agrigento.
The history of the Farm Cultural Park in Favara
The seven courtyards
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.
