Rock ‘n’ love: a new model of development

12 July 2019

CON IL SUD Foundation’s 13th Birthday
August 7 to 9, 2019 in Castelbuono (Palermo)

On a tour of the best southern Italy has to offer, where rock ‘n’ love for the land create new models of development

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. We have planned three days in which you will meet the protagonists of this change, visit the fields, the local dairy farms, visit abondoned and restored ancient churches, experience breathtaking views and unique flavours. It will be an opportunity to see and hear the most inspiring stories of this region.

This tour is promoted in collaboration with the international Ypsigrock music festival, a renown event that attracts thousands of young people from all over Europe, which will takes place from August 8 to 12.
