Discovering Polizzi Generosa through culture and biodiversity

2

nights

An itinerary to discover Polizzi Generosa with the people who live there and their stories.
You will meet people who have committed and still commit each day to the work of recovering and safeguarding biodiversity and traditional knowledge.
During the medicinal herbs workshop you will be exposted to the vegetal world and learn how to prepare everyday products based on plant extracts, practices that in the past were common knowledge.

Roberta
Roberta Billitteri is an expert in responsible tourism, with her laboratory IL GUSTO DEI COLORI. For Roberta, responsible tourism is, like agroecology, an approach that makes up a holistic philosophy of the place. A philosophy where nature and culture, and therefore territory and community, live in harmony.
