To go to the Agrigento data, the Archaeological Park of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento recorded 156,122 visitors compared to 127,000 last year, with an increase of 29,000. At the Griffo Museum, in fact, there were 4,780 visitors (in 2020 there were 4,082).
“Paying particular attention to places of culture generates results: the number of visitors registered in the last month of August – underlines the regional councilor of Cultural Heritage and Sicilian Identity, Alberto Samonà – it is not accidental, but the result of a methodical work that has lasted for some time and which is aimed at the full enhancement of our cultural heritage in a strategic key. The Musumeci government, in fact, is giving culture the importance it deserves, according to a long-term vision that wants to give new centrality to Sicily, starting precisely from the places and testimonies that tell its history and identity “.
