Two kilometers away is the wonderful Poetry Park, a journey through the most famous verses of literature, in the shade of the pines, with the background cicadas to remind us that it is summer. We spent a day in July in Sogliano Cavour along the Mediterranean paths of the Poetry Park, the pinewood area of this Salento hinterland, among the most beautiful, offering a unique and fascinating cultural journey, halfway between mind and body. Among wild plants of blackberries, fig trees and holm oaks of the Mediterranean, in this green lung on the road that connects the village to Corigliano d'Otranto, there are several posts that collect the poems of the classics of literature on fixed stands. Scattered here and there even cultural houses that encourage the exchange between readers called to donate a book so that the poetry becomes sharing in a place that aims to promote just this: the meeting, exchange, culture. But the Park of Poetry is also a public space open to children and sportsmen who can take advantage, the first of an area equipped with a playground, the latter of special gymnastic paths.
