Le Querce di Mamre – Santa Marina, Salina Island

In 2020, the process of creating the Park of Beauty and Science on the island of Salina (Aeolian archipelago), called Le Querce di Mamre, was initiated.

The Park’s educational activities, whose main venues will be in the Foundation’s buildings located in the municipality of Santa Marina, will revolve around experiences of interreligious dialogue and research on the Mediterranean’s cultural, philosophical and environmental biodiversity and support the development of advanced community welfare models on the small island.

Artistic residencies and international seminars will be periodically organised in the Park’s facilities. The island’s first energy communities will also be trialled. The research HUB will also support jointly sustainable and just development strategies on the island.
