Environment, architecture and photography are the themes of this exhibition organized by the Italian environmental organization FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) and winery Donnafugata.
The exhibition is called Emozioni di un paesaggio translated with Emotions of a landscape and displays 40 pictures by Renato Bazzoni, who was an architect and one of the funding members of FAI and died in 1996.
The photos, kindly lent by his wife Carla Bazzoni, were taken in the ’60s and ’70s and depict a rural architecture and integer landscape. Cotton, barley, olive trees capers and grapes were the major cultivations then. An attentive observer will notice the deep contrast with the actual status of the island, where agriculture is almost abandoned and the environmental degrade is rampant.

Sherbeth Festival, the international festival of ice cream, takes place in Cefalù – Sicily which claims the origins of ice cream. This event is called after an arabic term Sherbeth, which was given to the first “ice sorbet” produced in Sicily during the Arabic domination in IX century.
Since its first edition in 2007, the festival has been very popular. From September 15 through 18, 35 ice cream makers coming from all over the world will showcase the products that better represent the territory in the festival’s fifth edition.
Cefalù with its history, cultural heritage, and beautiful sea will turn into an ice cream town: tastings and workshops will entertain a diverse public for four days. For more information, visit www.sherbethfestival.it (in Italian) and/or visit the photo gallery.
