Origin of the Name

Agrigento is an Italian city from the region of Sicily, with around 55,000 inhabitants. A region adheres to the Mediterranean Diet and shows one of the best indexes of life quality in the world.

Historically famous for housing the ruins of Greek structures of the Valley of the Temples. Among the most significant temples we can find the Temple of Hercules, who was famous for his strength and courage. The legend has it that Hercules proposed to the people of the region to drop the weapons and engage with agriculture.

In Esperanto, the noun “Gento” means “People” and “Agri” is the abbreviation of “Agriculture”. Therefore, here in Agrigento, we believe in "Agriculture for people"
