Graph transformation systems (GTS) have been successfully proposed as a general, theoretically sound model for concurrency. Petri nets (PN), on the other side, are a central and intuitive formalism for concurrent or distributed systems, well supported by a number of analysis techniques/tools. Some PN classes have been shown to be instances of GTS. In this paper, we change perspective presenting an operational semantics of GTS in terms of Symmetric Nets, a well-known class of Coloured Petri nets featuring a structured syntax that outlines model symmetries. Some practical exploitations of the proposed operational semantics are discussed. In particular, a recently developed structural calculus for SN is used to validate graph rewriting rules in a symbolic way.
