The interpenetration between inhabited centers and historic gardens with imposing patrician residences expresses the paradox of numerous Sicilian urban landscapes, generated by a planning will that responds above all to the impulses of the market. The noise of motor traffic, the skyscrapers, the terraced houses, the shopping malls that characterize urban life seem to want to swallow up some historic parks, real cultural assets as they preserve a heritage of biodiversity and historical-architectural eminences of great aesthetic and identifying value. For this reason, historic parks are stimulating open-air educational laboratories of environmental and cultural ethics. They represent a place-guide, within chaotic cities, to reflect on the current natural and climatic imbalances and on the loss of landscape-territorial identity; a naturalistic scenery to decode the knowledge that pertains to ecosystems and biodiversity; a recreational space.
