From August 7 – 9, to mark the occasion of its thirteenth birthday, the CON IL SUD Foundation will accompany a group of journalists, foreign press correspondents, and representatives of national and international foundations in the discovery of a “slow-moving but rock-solid revolution” started in Castelbuono. With just over 8,000 inhabitants, in the cool of the Madonie mountain range and near the Tyrrhenian Sea, Castelbuono is best known for its precious “manna”, a solidified sugary sap, and for its unique harvesting method that takes place throughout August. It will be a genuine and memorable journey in learning about local bottom-up development projects, which have been supported by the CON IL SUD Foundation and have since involved organizations, young people, farmers, and locals. A journey to get to know a community created from social cohesion and the riches of its territory; a community that has started a new way of doing local development in southern Italy and thus has become a visionary for its future.
