We're the Story
The story of the south-eastern corner of Sicily, its setting unequalled elsewhere, is a cultural weave of landscape, Greekness, Baroque, art, nature, faith, knowledge and tradition, of people who lived there in the past and in the present, of important things that happen.
The story of the places where history began all round the Mediterranean basin, for thousands of years the desired land, with its promise of prosperity, growth and development for Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish, and, from the last century on, the desired land also of a senseless industrialisation.
This is a story about Passions: artists, musicians, designers, cooks, farmers, spectators at the Greek Theatre of plays repeated for more than a century. It's about volunteers and the projects of young people who look to the future.
It's a story for those who are looking for a form of tourism that is compatible with the protection and appreciation of a cultural landscape, for travellers and residents.
This is a story about places perfect for experiencing and reflecting on the fragility of the contemporary world.
