The park, created to honour the memory of Carlo Levi, is extremely rich in places, objects, events which reconstruct his exile in the 1930s.

In the town, it is possible to visit the restored house where Carlo Levi lived, watch theatrical performances in the open, visit the permanent exhibition in the ex-town hall or visit the rebuilt set of the film ‘Christ stopped at Eboli’.

Besides, the ‘Museo della Civiltà Contadina’ will be exploited and permanent cultural centres, an exhibition and a prize for painting and a course and a prize for writing will be organised.

It will also be possible to take part in diversified literary itineraries: a visit to Aliano, rich in reminders of the presence of Levi, or a tour among the ravines, the settlements of Magna Graecia, the river Sauro and the other neighbouring towns.
