After the meeting, all participants had a great time to visit the Park Museum Jalari. Park Museum Jalari is a land of artistic sculptures and wonders that includes a symbolic foundation which frees the reality to transfigure into a long dream. The Park Museum “Jalari” is situated on the Peloritan mountains a few kilometres from Barcellona P.G. extended over 35 hectares. It is difficult to synthesize in a few words what were the values, the culture and the spirit that animated the authors of the park in these long, intensive and happy years of activity. Hence, we hope that during the visit. all participants had a leisure time with unique and harmonious styles of Salvotore Pietrini’s architectures.
