The Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, part of the campaign's cultural International Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens 2013, organizes a show that offers the essentials to follow the story of a historical and cultural place Icelandic, around which focuses the attention of the Award, composed of the garden Skrúður and from the village of Thu- Nupur, located on the edge of one of the fjords of the north-western region, a few kilo-meters from the little circle-ing Arctic.

The third section illustrates the historical events and the ways in which it was built and still lives the garden Skrudur. Particularly, describes the main steps and the mentality of an operation here that is understandable even by reading the diary (prominently on display in the original) on which, in forty years, Pastor noted his work as an educator and brave farmer in a challenging environment, marked by elements of backwardness. It also documented the work of the group of men and women who in recent years has taken charge of the garden, he rescued from abandonment and returned it in 1996 visits and growing.

Skrudur is a vegetable garden, a botanical garden linked to a school of arts and crafts, surrounded solemn behind the curtain of mountains from the hips moved by glacial erosion and downstream from a barren land that slopes down to the sea. Núpur is the name of the great mountain that is above and below that is the microcosm inhabited, with the school, the church and the farm; is home to a community that at the beginning of the twentieth century has challenged the extreme environmental situation with a program to improve the human condition given to the cultivation of the land, education and social elevation of someone who cares.
