In a delightful corner of Sicily in which history and nature chase each other, a few kilometres from an evocative system of meanders and karst tunnels, in the 17th century a rich nobleman from Palermo established a town.

This documentary tells its story, demonstrating how, thanks to providential restoration operations that have brought back the Late-Baroque and Neo-Renaissance forms of the churches and buildings to their original splendour, the damage provoked by the 1968 quake are today only partly visible.

A journey in search of Santa Ninfa, rebuilt intelligently harmonising ancient and new architectures, of its resources, of its memories, of its glorious institutions, of its religion.

A journey to the heart of a community, the emigration phenomenon of which, has rendered it more unified, making known its desire to rediscover its roots, its historical identity, and to spread that message of brotherhood that, since its foundation, has united all the people of this town, born more than 4 centuries ago in on of Sicily's most enchanting corners.

"Viaggio nel fiore del sapore" is a travel in the history and in the contemporaneity of people of the Belice Valley.

Landscape is narrated by its views, the ancestral scents, the ancient but still existing flavors. A travel through a reality that remains the same while renewing itself daily.
