Favara Farm Cultural Park

 I read in a book about Favara's Cultural Park and it took my attention, because Favara is one of the Sicilian towns with the highest unemployment rate and lots and lots of ugly buildings. We made our way to Favara, followed the GPS and ended up in a worn-down street where apparently nothing was happening. We squeezed ourselved through one of the open windows and ended up in this arty neighbourhood getting ready for a new season with cool bars & restaurants, exhibitions, wall art, installations and lots of positive energy. It was buzzing with action and a nice change of what we had seen of the village so far. It is cool to see initiatives like this in an apparently dead city - the contrast could not be bigger.
It was truly an inspiring visit.
