THE STORY

After the eruption of 1928, the citizens of Mascali managed to restart their economy using the same resources with which Etna destroyed their beautiful village. After almost 100 years, the local community has commissioned Yari to prepare a Project Funding document to be presented to a group of international investors invited to an inspection of the place to enhance the value of the area and its artisanal, agricultural-food and tourism sectors.

The first meeting is scheduled in the Council hall of the Duomo where Yari will illustrate the brochure of the project. There is no need to tell you that we count on your professionality as investor to grasp the full potential of this wonderful land.

Yari will present himself for what he is in reality, an economist who loves his land and wants to enhance its value. In the role of a "potential investor", you will examine the project funding document that will serve as a guideline to meet the most important economic realities of the territory.

We will start with a path to relive the disastrous eruption of 1928 and understand how the citizens managed to develop their economy despite the misfortune. We will visit a craft atelier and a bio-agricultural farm to allow the "investors" to gather sufficient elements to understand the great potential of this land. At the end of the survey the "investors" will return their overall assessment to the representatives of local institutions. We have no doubt that the outcome will be positive and, in all cases, there will be a celebratory toast along with a rich tasting of the best local food products.
