- Prize TRI – Cristina Ambrosini 2017 section public bodies, promoted by the Agenzia di Viaggi. The motivation was "the destination offers diverse paths that cross internal areas characterized by a low population density and constitute a stimulus for responsible tourism, the ‘albergo diffuso’, the cultural heritage of these three splendid Sicilian Medieval towns, immersed between an untouched nature and one of the most stunning river parks of Sicily. The soft mobility suggested, together with the practice of responsible tourism thus becomes a real opportunity of necessary growth and a concrete way to avoid the depopulation of the three towns".
