Alessio Arena is the Scientific Director of Villa Tasca. Villa Tasca, through the enlightened project of Counts Giuseppe Tasca d'Almerita and Luisa Mainardi, started an environmental revolution in the history of Palermo, valorising the park surrounding the house and the historic garden to citizens and tourists. Today, the Villa Tasca park, saved from Mafia building speculation in Palermo, is the only true green lung in the fourth district of the city of Palermo.
