Valeria’s private garden

Mrs. Valeria’s private garden is located in a northern district of the city of Catania which was historically characterized by farmlands and citrus groves. Because of this original configuration, the garden still shows the ancient "saie", the irrigation channels made of stone that were used to carry water through the cultivated fields. In today's modern garden they remain as a tribute to the water-element that symbolizes the vital principle of every natural environment. These canals form a trail in the garden through black lava rock outcrops, monumental trees, lush vegetation and traditional citrus groves.
