Decorated and built in full liberty style, it counts of four floor (underground, basement, 1 and 2 floor). Unfortunately all the stuff inside (except the structure and the walls) are renewed...

A charming building, so well restored after a fire - but even the burnt bits look by design. Very friendly guide explained everything.

Off the beaten track, this beautifully restored Art Nouveau villa can be visited for free. Tours are given in Italian and, depending on the guide, other languages.

All of them are very welcoming and... More

This was a most important family during late 1800s and beginning of 1900s. They were also instrumental in starting the Targa Florio sports car races and Marsala wines.

Unfortunately,like lot of things in Italy (especially in Sicily) this awesome piece of art is almost abandoned. The township keep this structure daily close and it's a real pity... More
