OUT OF PRINT: Sometimes there are places in which there is not too much remains, but they have a great charm. it´s truth, one have to imagine Mevaniola´s ancient theatre, and it´s also truth that one can imagine a spectacular barbecue here, or drinking lemonade enjoying a book seating in the rows of these lost garden. A charming place, anyway... that we do not have to imagine it.
