Il sogno di Empedocle

In the heart of a lemon and orange garden, protected by Mount Etna, there is a lava-stoned seed rising. it is six metres high with texts in Latin, Greek and other foreign languages on the bottom. The path is slightly raised from the soil and is made with local wood. It crosses the whole garden and ushers visitors at the discovery of the garden and its seed through an attractive way.
