The jury members had the task to select, among all the projects received thanks to the international call, the winners.
The choice of the members is made of professionals with twenty years of experience in the garden design and landscape fields, as well as experts in botany and maintenance of Mediterranean gardens. All judges have national and international multiple experiences, included in Sicily, and they were asked to find a sensibility in the projects that would have a resonance exactly with this land given that in Sicily the Mediterranean basin shows itself in all its richness of heterogeneity from all point of view. Their contribution has led to the victory of ten projects, all very different in the way they are recounting the theme of the garden productivity, but they all have a strong and distinct character and give different suggestions and reflections to the Festival visitor.
Sarah Eberle, president of the jury, was the chairman and collaborated with other international protagonists, Pablo Georgieff co-founder of coloco, the professor and art critic Giovanni Iovane, the decorator of the green Franco Livoti and the teacher of horticulture and floriculture Daniela Romano.
