The valley of the Sant’Agata river is nestled in the red land of the Aspromonte mountains, in Southern Italy, and flows towards the sea, until it plunges into the Strait of Messina. The name of the waterway originates from the Greek aghaté, which is linked to concepts such as beauty, goodness and nobility; as if travellers from the Magna Graecia period had been enchanted by this place. This is my landscape. I cannot help but love it. It is a beautiful place.
