A visual poem to tell about the almond trees that flower every year in February, in the city of Agrigento, announcing the arrival of spring.
The delicacy of this flower and the ephemerality of its existence are a symbol of not only fragility but also of the rebirth and beauty of existence.
At the same time, this flower has become a call to multiculturalism,
to the integration and exaltation of friendship among peoples.
The flowering of the almond trees in the Valley of the Temples of Agrigento is in fact,
for years, accompanied by the “International Festival of Folklore” that
expertly mixes cultures and traditions of people from all over the world.
A real exaltation to life, the dance that brings us closer and reminds us that beyond our differences, we are all people.
