"IDDU", meaning Him So it is called by the wise elder highest active volcano in Europe, with a great sense of respect. In these places, the grapevine is grown and lives in extreme conditions for its survival. The plant lives on the volcano, reaches and even exceeds the 100 years of age before falling asleep. The same age that can reach man. The branch of the vine at this age and in these conditions, bends and takes a face with wrinkles and furrows, as, wise old man who lives, works, grows. In these places, the old wise look at the volcano with a great sense of respect for the grandeur and the fear that "Iddu" strikes. Because they know perfectly well that life is born from the volcano and the same life can raise, so it is respected and seen as a great God, too, by him (the wine) comes life, and even the life he can raise; to 'He also has great internal God coincidentally comes from both the life and life can both raise, just as God can only do a great human being too like them.

One is reminded of a simile and analogy between the leaves of the vine and the human hand. The leaves of the vine has the semblance of a human hand, with its five main veins, and its five lobes as the hand with five fingers. Often, they are very similar, also for their dimensions. Both have also in common with the same side or page more or less tomentosa (hairy), to be precise the lower one, and both are rich in pores for transpiration; and the stem from where it opens the leaf looks like a real arm. * Similarities and Analogies between the wine and the Man.

Located on a plateau overlooking Sicily's southern coast, Agrigento was founded as Akragas around 582 BC by a group of Greek colonists from Gela. It was destroyed several times during the Punic Wars, suffering particularly extensive damage during a siege by Roman forces in 261 BC, but always rebuilt. The Greek poet Pindar (518-438 BC) described Akragas as "the most beautiful city of the mortals." Akragas' most famous citizen was the philosopher and scientist Empedocles (490-430 BC).
In the Valley of the Temples are the ruins of numerous temples but also necropoli, houses, streets and everything else one would expect to find in an ancient city. There is a small amphitheatre, as well as several auditoria, and a fine archeological museum. Unfortunately, most of the temples at Agrigento are in ruins, with pieces strewn about, and several appear to have never even been completed. Part of the Temple of Juno, built around 450 BC, is still intact. Its style has been compared to that of the temples at Paestum, near Salerno. The Temple of Concord (named retroactively), built around 440 BC, is in far better condition, and at night the illuminated temple is a sight to behold. A number of telamons (large segmented stone columns in the form of human figures) have been preserved.
