The park was established in 1993 and is situated in Valsinni, a town dominated by the Morras' castle, around which the old town lies.

The literary park extends over the places that were the scene of the life of the poetess Isabella Morra (about 1516-1545), one of the most original voices in XVI century poetry.

The journey through the park covers the places loved by the poetess of Basilicata: the castle, the old town, the Sinni river, Mount Coppolo, the Gallinico wood and the chapel of the Pietà. Along these routes and in the town centre, guided tours, events and temporary exhibitions are regularly organised.

In summertime, the manifestation ‘L'Estate di Isabella’ is noteworthy. It turns the whole town into a Renaissance scene, where theatrical and musical performances take place, attracting a lot of guests and visitors to the small town on the Sinni.
