Bronte Nelson castle Sprawling sett. River Valley The Farm The Woods Mountain veg. The Roads THEHISTORICALMAP Set along the Simeto river, which is the biggest Sicilian watercourse, the protected area lies in the territories of Centuripe, Bronte, Adrano and Randazzo, with a surface area of about 291 hectares, with a full 285 in Zone A, the area of maximum protection. The protected area was included in the plan to conserve and safeguard the long succession of lava tunnels, with waterfalls, rapids, little lakes and gorges that the Simeto river has created as it runs between the basaltic lavas of an old Etna flow. In this wild environment, there is a very specialised plant community, capable of surviving spates and summer heat, goats' bites and winter frost, giving shelter to a rare and specialised fauna. The collared grass-snake, the green lizard and Wagler's lizard warm themselves in the sun, THERIVER!

The average quantity of rainwater is 600 – 700 mm per year. There are different kinds of rocks in the site, starting by the youngest to the oldest, we have: - Alluvioni attuali e recenti (new current flood) - Alluvioni terrazzate continentali e marine (terraced marine flood) - Lave dei centri eruttivi alcalini (volcanic alcaline lava rocks) - Flysch Numidico Most of the rocks in our part are lava, with a very high permeability. The permeability in this rocks is due essentially by a crowded net of breaks. This high permeability in the surface rocks give a fast drainage, avoiding the surface erosion. The studied area is stable for the breaking strength of surface rocks, that with their high porosity doesn’t allow stagnancy of surface water. Geomorphology!

  5. 5. The Idea ! NeprodiPark NelsonCastle TheFarm Bronte Etna Park SimetoTour OldBridge TheWoods The Green Path ! A concept of a green link between the two regional parks , Etna and Neprodi, going through The woods Seravalle Bridge , the Farm as information Point and through (Bosco Carbonara) , along the river. Featuring different experiences of vegetation ( agriculture , wild and woods & man made environment . The Blue Path ! The idea inspired from the flow of the river to have a linear park along the river making use of abandoned road network, with node points along the path offering , information , various Activities and Services. The Nodes ! Seravalle Zone… This node plays a key role in our concept , as the historical bridge will be the link between different parts of the area , The farm will be the information and the area center of activities , recalling the traditions of cultivating , cooking, and agri-food production which will add a point of interest to the area . As long with raising the awareness of the surrounding area .
