Riposto is in full swing for the event which has all the possibilities to relaunch inbound tourism in Sicily. The island, indeed, is prosperous but its economy turns around seasonal mass tourism which only becomes relevant in the summertime.
The Radicepura Garden Festival is, on the contrary, the first insighful attempt to get rid of the common stereotype that sees Sicily as an island where sea and good food are the only attractivnesses. The event, going on from April the 21st to October the 21st, gives the opportunity to enhance and promote the full potencial of our territory to be enjoyed 365 days a year. It celebrates the greatness of nature and all the unknown forms of art coming from it: from gardens-the very protagonists of the event- to Land Art installations, from workshops to music performances and yet, the regional cousine.
Everything is conceived to make the touristic offer in the territory in between of Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea more vast and segmentated; to express all the profitable outcomes out of food and wine, florovivaistic, horticultural markets.
Radicepura is one of the most appreciated and required locations for congresses, charity dinners or entertainment events. Thanks to its picturesque beauty and its being self sufficient both in terms of energy and water, the multipurpose park addresses the cause of environmental sustainability and provides clients with elegant, wide spaces dedicated to hospitality.
From company conventions to educational botanical visits, from guided walks through the park to the study of Mediterranean flora, Radicepura offers style and functionality at the highest levels and from April on it will also be the green lung of eastern Sicily.
