Farm Cultural Park, Favara
In the heart of the historic centre of Favara, a town in the province of Agrigento half an hour from the Valley of the Temples, lies the Farm Cultural Park. It is a touchstone for contemporary artists and an amazing artistic venue.
So much so that today, the Sicilian centre is the sixth city in the world among the ten unmissable destinations for contemporary art lovers, according to the ranking of the English blog “Purple Travel”.
It all began when Florinda and Andrea, she a lawyer and he a notary, decided to change their lives and fulfil a dream: to transform an entire district in the centre of Favara into a lively modern art worksite.
So, after buying a few houses in the historic centre, they called the first architects to have them renovated. Together with the architects and builders, the first artists arrived. And slowly this wonderful project began to take shape.
It seemed like an impossible dream to achieve in Favara, but the positive energy of Florinda and Antonio infected the inhabitants. The fact of sharing the project with them was a crucial factor in its success.
Seven white courtyards, connected to each other, with a bold Arabian style. A cultural park, where the old abandoned houses have been transformed into places to exhibit contemporary and photographic art, meeting spaces, open kitchens for workshops and lunches, cocktail and wine bars, and vintage shops.
Spend at least an hour at the Farm, be inspired and have fun finding the perfect spot to capture unforgettable memories of your trip to Sicily.
