Mosaics composed of vegetables and fruits are the protagonists of the so called “Inverdurata of Pachino”, an event that now is its 15th edition, which takes place in Pachino and is organized by Inverdurata association, Pro Loco of Marzamemi, the Municipality of Pachino and the Ible Tourist District.

This is a competition with prizes which involves artistic mosaics made along the streets of the historic center with the vegetables produced traditionally by the fertile territory of Pachino.

Born in 2004 on the initiative of the Pachinese Anticrime Association (APAC), to bring schools, associations and groups closer to the legality topics, the competition takes place in May in memory of the victims of the Capaci massacre, and includes two sections, one dedicated to artists and the other one to schools and boys.

In 2018 the event was dedicated to the theme of the "Myth and symbolism of Sicilian ceramics"; the 2017 edition, on the other hand, dealt with the theme "The places of Montalbano".

The program, which takes place along the central Via Cavour and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, is enriched with extemporaneous paintings, musical performances and artisan markets.
